A fully-discrete virtual element method for the nonstationary Boussinesq equations

by   L. Beirão da Veiga, et al.

In the present work we propose and analyze a fully coupled virtual element method of high order for solving the two dimensional nonstationary Boussinesq system in terms of the stream-function and temperature fields. The discretization for the spatial variables is based on the coupling C^1- and C^0-conforming virtual element approaches, while a backward Euler scheme is employed for the temporal variable. Well-posedness and unconditional stability of the fully-discrete problem is provided. Moreover, error estimates in H^2- and H^1-norms are derived for the stream-function and temperature, respectively. Finally, a set of benchmark tests are reported to confirm the theoretical error bounds and illustrate the behavior of the fully-discrete scheme.
