Claudia Schillings (University of Warwick) visited us and gave a talk at the
Applied Mathematics Seminar.
- New preprint:
together with Serge Nicaise we studied the boundary element method (BEM) on graded meshes for the
electric field integral equation on polyhedral surfaces.
We have established convergence of the method and
proved that on sufficiently graded meshes the h-version of the BEM
regains a sub-optimal convergence rate.
The key ingredient of our convergence analysis
are new stability properties of the Raviart-Thomas interpolation operator
for low-regular vector fields on anisotropic elements.
