Some improved error estimates for the modified method of characteristics. (English) Zbl 0693.65062
A finite element modified method of characteristics (MMOC) for the numerical solution of nonlinear advection-diffuson problems is analyzed. A suboptimal convergence results for the case when the diffusion coefficient D(u)0 and an L 2 error estimate which involves optimal rate and improved norms on the solution are obtained. These results are generalized to the case of a mixed finite element approximation for calculating the pressure, velocity field and MMOC for the concentration field.
