Residual Based Error Estimate for Higher Order Trefftz-Like Trial Functions on Adaptively Refined Polygonal Meshes
The BEM-based Finite Element Method is one of the promising strategies which are applicable for the approximation of boundary value problems on general polygonal and polyhedral meshes. The flexibility with respect to meshes arises from the implicit definition of trial functions in a Trefftz-like manner. These functions are treated locally by means of Boundary Element Methods (BEM). The following presentation deals with the formulation of higher order trial functions and their application in uniform and adaptive mesh refinement strategies. For the adaptive refinement, a residual based error estimate is used on general polygonal meshes for the higher order, conforming trial functions. The first numerical results, in the context of adaptive refinement, show optimal rates of convergence with respect to the number of degrees of freedom.
