Abstract:
This paper presents a new methodology to compute guaranteed upper bounds for the energy norm of the error in the context of linear finite element approximations of the reaction-diffusion equation. The new approach revisits the ideas in [20, 18] with the goal of substantially reducing the com- putational cost of the flux-free method while retaining the good quality of the bounds. The new methodology provides also a technique to compute equilibrated boundary tractions improving the quality of standard equilibration strategies. The zeroth-order equilibration conditions are imposed using an alternative less restrictive form of the first-order equilibration conditions, along with a new efficient minimization criterion. This new equilibration strategy provides much more accurate up- per bounds for the energy and requires only doubling the dimension of the local linear systems of equations to be solved.
