Unformatted text preview: s occur. The initial mesh consisted of 28,437 elements. This rose to more than 400,000 elements during the adaptive enrichment. This computation was done on 16 processors of a parallel computer. The coloring of the images on the right of Figure 10.3 indicates processor assignments. The discontinuous Galerkin method is still evolving and many questions regarding ux evaluation, limiting, a posteriori error estimation, the treatment of di usive problems, and its e ciency relative to standard nite element methods remain unanswered. Problems 1. Construct a typical term in the mass matrix on the canonical element by integrating Z 1 Z 1; Nm ( )Nn( )d d 0 0 using the basis of monomials (10.3.5). 2. Use the monomial basis (10.3.5) and the Gram-Schmidt process of Figure 10.3.2 to construct an orthogonal basis on the canonical right triangle for polynomials of 40 Hyperbolic Problems Figure 10.3.6: Mach contours (left) and adaptive meshes (right) used to solve the compressible ow problem of Example 10.3.2 at t = 0 (top) and t = 10:1 (bottom). degree p = 2 or less.
