Usually, the fast evaluation of a convolution integral formula12 requires that the functions f,g have a simple structure based on an equidistant grid in order to apply the fast Fourier transform. Here we discuss the efficient performance of the convolution of hp-functions in certain locally refined grids. More precisely, the convolution result is projected into some given hp-space (Galerkin approximation). The overall cost is formula20 where N is the sum of the dimensions of the subspaces containing f, g and the resulting function, while p is the maximal polynomial degree.
