A posteriori error estimates for the mortar staggered DG method

08/09/2019 ∙ by Lina Zhao, et al. ∙ 0

Two residual-type error estimators for the mortar staggered discontinuous Galerkin discretizations of second order elliptic equations are developed. Both error estimators are proved to be reliable and efficient. Key to the derivation of the error estimator in potential L^2 error is the duality argument. On the other hand, an auxiliary function is defined, making it capable of decomposing the energy error into conforming part and nonconforming part, which can be combined with the well-known Scott-Zhang local quasi-interpolation operator and the mortar discrete formulation yields an error estimator in energy error. Importantly, our analysis for both error estimators does not require any saturation assumptions which are often needed in the literature. Several numerical experiments are presented to confirm our proposed theories.
