An explicit expression for the penalty parameter of the interior penalty method. (English) Zbl 1072.65149
Summary: We derive an explicit expression for the penalty parameter of the interior penalty method for elliptic problems. The expression yields a coercive bilinear form, and is valid for general meshes comprising of (geometrically nonconforming) simplical elements.
