Finite elements for divdiv-conforming symmetric tensors in arbitrary dimension

06/25/2021 ∙ by Long Chen, et al. ∙ 0

Several div-conforming and divdiv-conforming finite elements for symmetric tensors on simplexes in arbitrary dimension are constructed in this work. The shape function space is first split as the trace space and the bubble space. The later is further decomposed into the null space of the differential operator and its orthogonal complement. Instead of characterization of these subspaces of the shape function space, characterization of the duals spaces are provided. Vector div-conforming finite elements are firstly constructed as an introductory example. Then new symmetric div-conforming finite elements are constructed. The dual subspaces are then used as build blocks to construct divdiv conforming finite elements.
