The results with S N consisting only of hierarchical corrections of degree p + 1 are
reasonable. E ectivity indices are in excess of 0.9 for the lowerdegree polynomials p = 7.4. A Posteriori Error Estimation

degree polynomial correction has improved the error estimates with p = 4 however,
a similar tactic provided little improvement with p = 3. These results and those of
Strouboulis and Haque 19] show that the performance of a posteriori error estimates is
still dependent on the problem being solved and on the mesh used to solve it.
Another way of simplifying the error estimation procedure (7.4.8) and of understanding the di erences betw...
