Some Recent Results for Adaptive Finite Elements

Randolph E. Bank


We will discuss our on-going investigation of adaptive strategies for finite element equations. We show first that under modest assumptions, any robust and efficient a posteriori error indicator must behave as simple interpolation error for the exact finite element solution. We then use interpolation error to study several popular h and hp adaptive algorithms.
