Anisotropic a posteriori error estimation for the mixed discontinuous Galerkin approximation of the Stokes problem

Abstract : The paper presents a posteriori error estimates for the mixed discontinuous Galerkin approximation of the stationary Stokes problem. We consider anisotropic finite element discretizations, i.e. elements with very large aspect ratio. Our analysis covers two- and three-dimensional domains. Lower and upper error bounds are proved with minimal assumptions on the meshes. The lower error bound is uniform with respect to the mesh anisotropy. The upper error bound depends on a proper alignment of the anisotropy of the mesh which is a common feature of anisotropic error estimation. In the special case of isotropic meshes, the results simplify, and upper and lower error bounds hold unconditionally. The numerical experiments confirm the theoretical predictions and show the usefulness of the anisotropic error estimator.
