Title:Struggle with Discrete Stability and Convergence
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Leszek Demkowicz, ICES, University of Texas Austin
Abstract:
I will review the history of analyzing stability and convergence of Galerkin methods including Finite Element methods. We will start with the main points of Babuska's Theorem and then review the history of the struggle from Ritz and Rayleigh, through Galerkin, Bubnow and Petrov, asymptotic stability result of Mikhlin, concept of optimal testing of Barret and Morton, stabilized methods including SUPG, bubble methods, DG methods and, finally, minimum residual methods including the DPG method.
