Dual Functions for a Parallel Adaptive Method

Randolph Bank and Jeffrey Ovall


In this paper, we investigate the effects of pollution error on the performance of the parallel adaptive finite element technique proposed by Bank and Holst in 2000. In particular, we consider whether the performance of the algorithm as it was originally proposed can be improved through the use of certain dual functions which give indication of global influences on subdomain errors.
