Error analysis of a decoupled finite element method for quad-curl problems

5 Feb 2021  ·  Shuhao Cao, Long Chen, Xuehai Huang ·

Finite element approximation to a decoupled formulation for the quad--curl problem is studied in this paper. The difficulty of constructing elements with certain conformity to the quad--curl problems has been greatly reduced... For convex domains, where the regularity assumption holds for Stokes equation, the approximation to the curl of the true solution has quadratic order of convergence and first order for the energy norm. If the solution shows singularity, a posterior error estimator is developed and a separate marking adaptive finite element procedure is proposed, together with its convergence proved. Both a priori and a posteriori error analysis are supported by the numerical examples. read more
