Guaranteed lower bounds for eigenvalues Gedicke, Joscha


This talk introduces fully computable two-sided bounds on the eigenvalues of the Laplace operator on arbitrarily coarse meshes based on some approximation of the corresponding eigenfunction in the nonconforming Crouzeix-Raviart finite element space plus some postprocessing. The efficiency of the guaranteed error bounds involves the global mesh-size and is proven for the large class of graded meshes. Numerical examples demonstrate the reliability of the guaranteed error control even with inexact solve of the algebraic eigenvalue problem. This motivates an adaptive algorithm which monitors the discretisation error, the maximal mesh-size, and the algebraic eigenvalue error. The accuracy of the guaranteed eigenvalue bounds is surprisingly high with efficiency indices as small as 1.4. This is joint work with Carsten Carstensen.
