Uniform Convergence of the LDG Method for a Singularly Perturbed Problem with the Exponential Boundary Layer
Mathematics and Natural Sciences
In this paper, we study a uniform convergence property of the local discontinuous Galerkin method (LDG) for a convection-diffusion problem whose solution has exponential boundary layers. A Shishkin mesh is employed. The trail functions in the LDG method are piecewise polynomials that lies in the space Q(k), i.e., are tensor product polynomials of degree at most k in one variable, where k > 0. We identify that the error of the LDG solution in a DG-norm converges at a rate of (ln N/N)(k+1/2); here the total number of mesh points is O(N-2). The numerical experiments show that this rate of convergence is sharp.
