- Designing New Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) Schemes
Petrov-Galerkin methods seek approximate solutions of boundary value problems in a "trial" space by weakly imposing the equations on a "test" space. A basic design principle is that while trial spaces must have good approximation properties, the test space must be chosen for stability. When this idea is applied to ultra-weak variational formulations, we obtain methods that exhibit remarkable stability properties. We will illustrate the idea using a simple transport equation as an example and proceed to generalize to more complex problems.
