Finite element methods for convection-diffusion problems. (English) Zbl 0505.76099

Computing methods in applied sciences and engineering V, Proc. 5th int. Symp., Versailles 1981, 311-323 (1982).
Summary: We give a survey of some recent results for finite element methods for first order linear hyperbolic problems. In particular we discuss a new finite element method for convection dominated convection-diffusion problems, the streamline diffusion method, which is higher order accurate and has good stability properties. We also present improved estimates for the fully discontinuous Galerkin method by Lesaint-Raviart and give extensions to Friedrichs’ systems.
