This is a One World Seminar Series.
The seminars occur every two weeks, on a Monday (14:00-15:00 GMT).
Zoom links will be sent on the Friday prior to each seminar, with a reminder on Monday morning.
Recordings of talks given as part of this series can be found here.
Carsten Carstensen (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) Half a century of Crouzeix-Raviart finite elements
- Invented in 1973 for any polynomial degree to solve the Stokes equations with piecewise divergence-free velocities, the
Crouzeix-Raviart finite elements allowed various applications to nonlinear PDE over the years. In their lowest-order version,
they compete with conforming schemes in elasticity and the Bingham flow. But, most unexpectedly, they allow guaranteed
lower eigenvalue bounds for the Laplacian and guaranteed lower energy bounds in convex minimization; they even overcome
the Lavrentiev phenomenon.
The presentation discusses contributions to the aforementioned model problems from the speaker's group and former
students. The circle through all those topics will be closed with remarks on the very beginning of the Crouzeix-Raviart
finite element history: Crouzeix-Raviart triangular elements are inf-sup stable for any polynomial degree provided the
mesh has interior vertices. This answers a conjecture of M. Crouzeix and R. Falk after three decades.
The time restrictions permit any discussion of a medius analysis, as addressed e.g. in an overview paper by S. Brenner,
or of companion operators. Only minimal comments on the a posteriori error control and the mathematics of adaptive
mesh-refining algorithms might be expected.
