The paper concerns a posteriori estimates of functional type for the difference between exact and approximate solutions to a generalized Stokes problem. The estimates are derived by transformations of the basic integral identity defining a generalized solution to the problem using the method suggested by the first author. The estimates obtained can be classified into two types. Estimates of the first type are valid only for solenoidal functions, while estimates of the second type are applicable for any functions that belong to the energy space of the respective problem and satisfy the boundary conditions. In the second case, the estimates include an additional penalty term with a multiplier defined by the constant in the Ladyzhenskaya-Babuška-Brezzi condition. It is proved that a posteriori estimates for the velocity field yield computable estimates of the difference between exact and approximate pressure functions in the L2-norm. It is shown that the estimates provide sharp upper and lower bounds of the error and their practical computation requires to solve only finite-dimensional problems. Bibliography: 34 titles.

    ABSTRACT This paper examines the implications for eddy parameterizations of expressing them in terms of the quasi-Stokes velocity. Another definition of low-passed time-averaged mean density (the modified mean) must be used, which is the inversion of the mean depth of a given isopycnal. This...
