Multipatch Discontinuous Galerkin IGA for the Biharmonic Problem On Surfaces

by   Stephen E. Moore, et al.

We present the analysis of interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin Isogeometric Analysis (dGIGA) for the biharmonic problem on orientable surfaces Ω⊂ℝ^3. Here, we consider a surface consisting of several non-overlapping patches as typical in multipatch dGIGA. Due to the non-overlapping nature of the patches, we construct NURBS approximation spaces which are discontinuous across the patch interfaces via a penalty scheme. By an appropriate discrete norm, we present a priori error estimates for the non-symmetric, symmetric and semi-symmetric interior penalty methods. Finally, we confirm our theoritical results with numerical experiments.
