Generalized Weak Galerkin Finite Element Methods for Biharmonic Equations

by   Dan Li, et al.

The generalized weak Galerkin (gWG) finite element method is proposed and analyzed for the biharmonic equation. A new generalized discrete weak second order partial derivative is introduced in the gWG scheme to allow arbitrary combinations of piecewise polynomial functions defined in the interior and on the boundary of general polygonal or polyhedral elements. The error estimates are established for the numerical approximation in a discrete H^2 norm and a L^2 norm. The numerical results are reported to demonstrate the accuracy and flexibility of our proposed gWG method for the biharmonic equation.
