$L^\infty$ estimation of the LDG method for 1-d singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problems

Abstract / Introduction Related Papers Cited by
  • Pointwise error estimates of the local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method for a one-dimensional singularly perturbed problem are studied. Several uniform $L^\infty$ error bounds for the LDG approximation to the solution and its derivative are established on a Shishkin-type mesh. Numerical experiments are presented.
