Abstract

We obtain a computable lower bound on the value of the interior penalty parameters sufficient for the existence of a unique discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximation of a second order elliptic problem. The bound obtained is valid for meshes containing an arbitrary number of hanging nodes and elements of arbitrary nonuniform polynomial order.
