Superconvergence analysis and extrapolation of nonconforming mixed finite element approximation for nonlinear viscoelastic wave equation. (Chinese. English summary) Zbl 1363.74077

Summary: A nonconforming mixed finite element method for nonlinear viscoelastic wave equation is studied based on a new mixed variational form. By utilizing the properties of interpolation on the element, high accuracy analysis, derivative delivery techniques with respect to time \(t\) and mean-value theorem, two special properties of \(EQ_1^{\mathrm {rot}}\) element: (a) the consistency error is of order \(O(h^2)\), which is one order higher than its interpolation error \(O(h)\); (b) the interpolation operator is equivalent to its Ritz-projection operator, the superclose properties and the global superconvergence with order \(O(h^2)\) for the primitive solution \(u\) in broken \(H^1\) norm and the intermediate variable \(p\) in \(L^2\) norm are obtained through interpolated postprocessing approach, respectively. Furthermore, by constructing a suitable auxiliary problem, the extrapolation result with higher order \(O(h^3)\) for \(u\) and \(p\) are derived through Richardson scheme.
