Usually, the fast evaluation of a convolution integral formula11 requires that the functions f,g are discretised on an equidistant grid in order to apply the fast Fourier transform. Here we discuss the efficient performance of the convolution in locally refined grids. More precisely, f and g are assumed to be piecewise linear and the convolution result is projected into the space of linear functions in a given locally refined grid. Under certain conditions, the overall costs are still formula19, where N is the sum of the dimensions of the subspaces containing f, g and the resulting function.
