Pointwise A Posteriori Error Analysis of a Discontinuous Galerkin Method for the Elliptic Obstacle Problem

by   Blanca Ayuso de Dios, et al.

We present a posteriori error analysis in the supremum norm for the symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin method for the elliptic obstacle problem. We construct discrete barrier functions based on appropriate corrections of the conforming part of the solution that is obtained via a constrained averaging operator. The corrector function accounts properly for the non-conformity of the approximation and it is estimated by direct use of the Green's function of the unconstrained elliptic problem. The use of the continuous maximum principle guarantees the validity of the analysis without mesh restrictions but shape regularity. The proposed residual type estimators are shown to be reliable and efficient. Numerical results in two dimensions are included to verify the theory and validate the performance of the error estimator.
