Local e ectivity indices on L and R are not close to unity and don't appear to
be converging as either the mesh spacing is re ned or p is increased. Global e ectivity
indices are near unity. Convergence to unity is di cult to appraise with the limited data. 30 Analysis of the Finite Element Method At this time, the eld of a posteriori error estimation is still emerging. Error estimates
for problems with singularities are not generally available. The performance of error
estimates is dependent on both the problem, the mesh, and the basis. Error estimates
for realistic nonlinear and transient problems are just emerging. Verfurth 20] provides
an exceelent survey of methods and results. Bibliography
