# Questions tagged [discontinuous-galerkin]

Questions about analysis, implementation or application of Galerkin methods for partial differential equations using piecewise functions that are not globally continuous (and hence require surface terms on element boundaries in addition to the usual volume terms occurring in finite element methods).

### Is AMG supposed to work with discontinuous Galerkin discretizations?

As the question says, are algebraic multigrid methods well suited to be used as preconditioners for problems discretised with Discontinuous Galerkin methods (say $p=1$)? I've always used AMG (actually,...

### Discontinuous Galerkin for Stokes flow

Greetings fellow members, I'm trying to implement a Discontinuous Galerkin scheme for a Stokes flow (Poiseuille). While I get very satisfactory results on the velocity, I'm suprised with negative ...

### Constructing metric terms for high order elements

Given 27 $(x,y,z)$ coordinates in 3D space which describe a generally curved quadratic hexahedron, which correspond to the HEXA_27 reference element figure with planar faces in $(\xi, \eta, \zeta)$ ...

### Finite difference problem

I have a problem to resolve with the Finite Difference method in $[a,b]$: $$-\frac{d}{dx}(\alpha(x)\frac{du}{dx})= g(x),$$ with $\alpha(x) \in L^{\infty}$ continuous in $]a,c[$ and $]c,b[$ and ...

### Solution predictors for accelerating convergence in nonlinear FEM

I am looking for the details of commonly-used predictors for accelerating the convergence of iterations using Newton-Raphson scheme for nonlinear problems in FEM. I am looking specifically for static ...

### Cell-centered DG extension to the two-point flux approximation scheme

A current problem that I am working on requires me to compute the solution from the heat diffusion evolution on a discontinuous function. More precisely - I have a Delaunay triangulation and within ...

### Gradient-jump penalty term in FEM

I am slightly confused regarding the meaning of the $i-th$ gradient-jump term $[\nabla \phi_i]$ in the context of finite element methods, used in the assembly of the stiffness matrix (an example with <...

### Slope limiting for discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method

I had a question regarding the implementation of the TVB limiter for the RKDG method by Cockburn. I have seen that some implementations of the DG method use normalized Legendre polynomials such that ...
