Standard Finite Elements for the Numerical Resolution of the Elliptic Monge-Ampere Equation
Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, University of Illinois, Chicago
We consider the discretization of the Dirichlet problem of the Monge-Ampere equation by finite elements. We propose a natural variational formulation which is discretized with spaces of piecewise polynomials C^r functions, r = 0, 1. We will discuss results on the existence of a solution to the discrete problem, convergence of a convexity preserving time marching method for solving it and the convergence of the discretization.
