Stabilization of Galerkin approximations of transport equations by subgrid modeling. (English) Zbl 0946.65112
Author’s abstract: This paper presents a stabilization technique for approximating transport equations. The key idea consists in introducing an artificial diffusion based on a two-level decomposition of the approximation space. The technique is proved to have stability and convergence properties that are similar to that of the streamline diffusion method.
