We devise new variants of the following nonconforming finite element methods: discontinuous Galerkin methods of fixed arbitrary order for the Poisson problem, the Crouzeix-Raviart interior penalty method for linear elasticity, and the quadratic C0 interior penalty method for the biharmonic problem. Each variant differs from the original method only in the discretization of the right-hand side. Before applying the load functional, a linear operator transforms nonconforming discrete test functions into conforming functions such that stability and consistency are improved. The new variants are thus quasi-optimal with respect to an extension of the energy norm. Furthermore, their quasi-optimality constants are uniformly bounded for shape regular meshes and tend to 1 as the penalty parameter increases.

Abstract

We devise new variants of the following nonconforming finite element methods: discontinuous Galerkin methods of fixed arbitrary order for the Poisson problem, the Crouzeix-Raviart interior penalty method for linear elasticity, and the quadratic C0 interior penalty method for the biharmonic problem. Each variant differs from the original method only in the discretization of the right-hand side. Before applying the load functional, a linear operator transforms nonconforming discrete test functions into conforming functions such that stability and consistency are improved. The new variants are thus quasi-optimal with respect to an extension of the energy norm. Furthermore, their quasi-optimality constants are uniformly bounded for shape regular meshes and tend to 1 as the penalty parameter increases.
