A fully space-time least-squares method for the unsteady Navier-Stokes system

09/11/2019 ∙ by Jerome Lemoine, et al. ∙ 0

We introduce and analyze a space-time least-squares method associated to the unsteady Navier-Stokes system. Weak solution in the two dimensional case and regular solution in the three dimensional case are considered. From any initial guess, we construct a minimizing sequence for the least-squares functional which converges strongly to a solution of the Navier-Stokes system. After a finite number of iterates related to the value of the viscosity constant, the convergence is quadratic. Numerical experiments within the two dimensional case support our analysis. This globally convergent least-squares approach is related to the damped Newton method when used to solve the Navier-Stokes system through a variational formulation.
