This paper presents an account of the current state of sampling, 50 years after Shannon’s formulation of the sampling theorem. The emphasis is on regular sampling, where the grid is uniform. This topic has benefited from a strong research revival during the past few years, thanks in part to the mathematical connections that were made with wavelet theory. To introduce the reader to the modern, Hilbertspace formulation, we reinterpret Shannon’s sampling procedure as an orthogonal projection onto the subspace of bandlimited functions. We then extend the standard sampling paradigm for a representation of functions in the more general class of “shiftinvariant” functions spaces, including splines and wavelets. Practically, this allows for simpler—and possibly more realistic—interpolation models, which can be used in conjunction with a much wider class of (antialiasing) prefilters that are not necessarily ideal lowpass. We summarize and discuss the results available for the determination of the approximation error and of the sampling rate when the input of the system is essentially arbitrary; e.g., nonbandlimited. We also review variations of sampling that can be understood from the same unifying perspective. These include wavelets, multiwavelets, Papoulis generalized sampling, finite elements, and frames. Irregular sampling and radial basis functions are briefly mentioned. Keywords—Bandlimited functions, Hilbert spaces, interpolation, least squares approximation, projection operators, sampling,

We construct massively parallel adaptive finite element methods for the solution of hyperbolic conservation laws. Spatial discretization is performed by a discontinuous Galerkin finite element method using a basis of piecewise Legendre polynomials. Temporal discretization utilizes a RungeKutta method. Dissipative fluxes and projection limiting prevent oscillations near solution discontinuities. The resulting method is of high order and may be parallelized efficiently on MIMD computers. We demonstrate parallel efficiency through computations on a 1024processor nCUBE/2 hypercube. We present results using adaptiverefinement to reduce the computational cost of the method, and tiling, a dynamic, elementbased data migration system that maintains global load balance of the adaptive method by overlapping neighborhoods of processors that each perform local balancing. 1. Introduction We are studying massively parallel adaptive finite element methods for solving systems ofdimensional hyper...

. Let u 2 H be the exact solution of a given selfadjoint elliptic boundary value problem, which is approximated by some ~ u 2 S, S being a suitable finite element space. Efficient and reliable a posteriori estimates of the error jj u \Gamma ~ u jj, measuring the (local) quality of ~ u, play a crucial role in termination criteria and in the adaptive refinement of the underlying mesh. A wellknown class of error estimates can be derived systematically by localizing the discretized defect problem using domain decomposition techniques. In the present paper, we provide a guideline for the theoretical analysis of such error estimates. We further clarify the relation to other concepts. Our analysis leads to new error estimates, which are specially suited to three space dimensions. The theoretical results are illustrated by numerical computations.

A methodology to model arbitrary holes and material interfaces (inclusions) without meshing the internal boundaries is proposed. The numerical method couples the level set method (Osher and Sethian, 1988) to the eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM) (Moes et al., 1999). In the XFEM, the finite element approximation is enriched by additional functions through the notion of partition of unity. The level set method is used for representing the location of holes and material interfaces, and in addition, the level set function is used to develop the local enrichment for material interfaces. Numerical examples in 2dimensional linear elastostatics are presented to demonstrate the accuracy and potential of the new technique.

The application of the Natural Element Method (NEM) (Traversoni, 1994; Braun and Sambridge, 1995) to boundary value problems in twodimensional small displacement elastostatics is presented. The discrete model of the domain \Omega consists of a set of distinct nodes N , and a polygonal description of the boundary @ In the Natural Element Method, the trial and test functions are constructed using natural neighbor interpolants. These interpolants are based on the Voronoi tessellation of the set of nodes N . The interpolants are smooth (C NEM is identical to linear finite elements. The NEM interpolant is strictly linear between adjacent nodes on the boundary of the convex hull, which facilitates imposition of essential boundary conditions. A methodology to model material discontinuities and nonconvex bodies (cracks) using NEM is also described.

We consider mixed finite element discretizations of linear second order elliptic boundary value problems with respect to an adaptively generated hierarchy of possibly highly nonuniform simplicial triangulations. In particular, we present and analyze four different kinds of error estimators: a residual based estimator, a hierarchical one, error estimators relying on the solution of local subproblems and on a superconvergence result, respectively. Finally, we examine the relationship between the presented error estimators and compare their local components.

We consider the discretization of obstacle problems for second order elliptic differential operators by piecewise linear finite elements. Assuming that the discrete problems are reduced to a sequence of linear problems by suitable active set strategies, the linear problems are solved iteratively by preconditioned cgiterations. The proposed preconditioners are treated theoretically as abstract additive Schwarz methods and are implemented as truncated hierarchical basis preconditioners. To allow for local mesh refinement we derive semilocal and local a posteriori error estimates, providing lower and upper estimates for the discretization error. The theoretical results are illustrated by numerical computations.

In this paper we review the basic concepts to obtain a posteriori error estimates for the finite element solution of an elliptic linear model problem. We give the basic ideas to establish global error estimates for the energy norm as well as goaloriented error estimates. While we show how these error estimation techniques are employed for our simple model problem, the emphasis of the paper is on assessing whether these procedures are ready for use in practical linear finite element analysis. We conclude that the actually practical error estimation techniques do not provide mathematically proven bounds on the error and need to be used with care. The more accurate estimation procedures also do not provide proven bounds that, in general, can be computed efficiently. We also briefly comment upon the state of error estimations

We consider easily computable and reliable error estimators for the approximation of linear elliptic boundary value problems by nonconforming finite element methods. In particular, we develop both elementoriented and edgeoriented estimators providing lower and upper bounds for the global discretization error. The local contributions of these estimators may serve as indicators for local refinement within an adaptive framework.
