Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

We propose computable a posteriori error estimates for a second order nonconforming finite element approximation of the Stokes problem. The estimator is completely free of unknown constants and gives a guaranteed numerical upper bound on the error, in terms of a lower bound for the inf-sup constant of the underlying continuous problem. The estimator is also shown to provide a lower bound on the error up to a constant and higher order data oscillation terms. Numerical results are presented illustrating the theory and the performance of the estimator.
