Publication# Fully discrete analysis of the heterogeneous multiscale method for elliptic problems with multiple scales

Abstract

A fully discrete analysis of the finite element heterogeneous multiscale method (FE-HMM) for elliptic problems with N+1 well-separated scales is discussed. The FE-HMM is a numerical homogenization method that relies on a macroscopic scheme (macro FEM) for the approximation of the effective solution corresponding to the multiscale problem. The effective data are recovered from micro scale computation (micro FEM) on sampling domains located at appropriate quadrature points of the macroscopic mesh. At the macroscopic level, the numerical method can be seen as an FEM with numerical quadrature for a modified effective problem, hence variational crimes are made when designing this method. Up to now, the method has been analysed for two scales and the micro FEM was assumed to be conforming. For more than two scales, variational crimes are committed also at the intermediate (meso) scales and the effective data of the macroscopic scheme are obtained from a cascade of FEMs with numerical integration, which require a careful analysis. Numerical experiments for three-scale problems illustrate the theoretical convergence rates.

Numerical integration

In analysis, numerical integration comprises a broad family of algorithms for calculating the numerical value of a definite integral, and by extension, the term is also sometimes used to describe the numerical solution of differential equations. This article focuses on calculation of definite integrals. The term numerical quadrature (often abbreviated to quadrature) is more or less a synonym for numerical integration, especially as applied to one-dimensional integrals.

Numerical differentiation

In numerical analysis, numerical differentiation algorithms estimate the derivative of a mathematical function or function subroutine using values of the function and perhaps other knowledge about the function. The simplest method is to use finite difference approximations. A simple two-point estimation is to compute the slope of a nearby secant line through the points (x, f(x)) and (x + h, f(x + h)). Choosing a small number h, h represents a small change in x, and it can be either positive or negative.

Numerical analysis

Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to symbolic manipulations) for the problems of mathematical analysis (as distinguished from discrete mathematics). It is the study of numerical methods that attempt at finding approximate solutions of problems rather than the exact ones. Numerical analysis finds application in all fields of engineering and the physical sciences, and in the 21st century also the life and social sciences, medicine, business and even the arts.
