Abstract

In this paper, a superconvergence of order (lnN∕N)2k+1" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; display: inline-block; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; position: relative;">(lnN∕N)2k+1 for the numerical traces of the LDG approximation to a one dimensional singularly perturbed convection–diffusion–reaction problem is proved. The LDG method is applied on a Shishkin mesh with 2N" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; display: inline-block; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; position: relative;">2N elements, and we use polynomials of degree at most k" role="presentation" style="box-sizing: border-box; display: inline-block; line-height: normal; font-size: 14.4px; word-spacing: normal; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; position: relative;">k on each element. This result puts the numerical finding reported in Xie and Zhang (2007), Xie et al. (2009) on firm mathematical ground.
