Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
