Convergence and Optimality 7 Using (7.2.6) A(u ; U u ; U ) = A(u ; U ; V u ; U ; V ) ; A(V V ): Since A(V V ) 0, A(u ; U u ; U ) A(u ; U ; V u ; U ; V ) N 8V 2 S0 : Equality only occurs when V = 0 therefore, U is the unique minimizing function. Remark 2. We proved a similar result for one-dimensional problems in Theorems 2.6.1, 2. Remark 3. Continuity and coercivity did not appear in the proof however, they are needed to establish existence, uniqueness, and completeness. Thus, we never proved that limN !1 U = u. A complete analysis appears in Wait and Mitchell 21], Chapter 6. Remark 4. The strain energy A(v u) not need be symmetric. A proof without this restriction appears in Ciarlet 13]. Corollary 7.2.1. With the assumptions of Theorem 7.2.2, A(u ; U u ; U ) = A(u u) ; A(U U ): (7.2.9) Proof. cf. Problem 3 at the end of this section. In Section 4.6, we obtained a priori estimates of interpolation errors under some mesh uniformit...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
