Approximation and eigenvalue extrapolation of biharmonic eigenvalue problem by nonconforming finite element methods. (English) Zbl 1151.65086

This paper deals with the eigenvalue problem \(\Delta^2 u=\lambda\rho u\) in \(\Omega\), \(u= {\partial u\over\partial n}= 0\) on \(\partial\Omega\), \(\int_\Omega\rho u^2= 1\). The authors analyze this problem by two nonconforming finite element methods and obtain a full order convergence rate of the eigenvalue approximations.
