ABSTRACT
Divergence- L q and divergence-measure tensor fields are introduced and their properties are analyzed. These measure-theoretic tools are then used to study the gradient flow of linear growth functionals of maps into the unit sphere. A BV-solution concept is introduced and the existence of such a solution is established for the flow using the energy method together with a regularization and a penalization technique. Based on the analytical results, practical fully discrete finite element methods are then proposed for computing weak solutions of the gradient flow, and the convergence of the proposed numerical method is also proved.

    Anisotropic mesh adaptation has been successfully applied to the numerical solution of partial differential equations but little considered for variational problems. In this paper, we investigate the use of a global hierarchical basis error estimator for the development of an anisotropic metric...

    The paper provides a computational technique that allows to compare all linear methods for PDE solving that use the same input data. This is done by writing them as linear recovery formulas for solution values as linear combinations of the input data, and these formulas are continuous linear...
