Error Estimates for the Numerical Approximation of Boundary Semilinear Elliptic Control Problems. Continuous Piecewise Linear Approximations
We discuss error estimates for the numerical analysis of Neumann boundary control problems. We present some known results about piecewise constant approximations of the control and introduce some new results about continuous piecewise linear approximations. We obtain the rates of convergence in L 2(Γ). Error estimates in the uniform norm are also obtained. We also discuss the semidiscretization approach as well as the improvement of the error estimates by making an extra assumption over the set of points corresponding to the active control constraints.
