Convergence of displacement-based FEM (C) Assume Mesh “is contained in” Mesh h 1 h 2 e.g. Mesh not contained in Mesh h 1 h 2 We assume (C), but need another property (independent of (C)) (III) a ( e h , e h ) a ( u v h , u v h ) v h V h (8.7) u h minimizes! (Recall e h = u u h ) Proof: Pick w h V h . a
