Abstract

On arbitrary polygonal domains $Omega subset RR^2$, we construct $C^1$ hierarchical Riesz bases for Sobolev spaces $H^s(Omega)$. In contrast to an earlier construction by Dahmen, Oswald, and Shi (1994), our bases will be of Lagrange instead of Hermite type, by which we extend the range of stability from $s in (2,frac{5}{2})$ to $s in (1,frac{5}{2})$. Since the latter range includes $s=2$, with respect to the present basis, the stiffness matrices of fourth-order elliptic problems are uniformly well-conditioned.
