Quasi-optimal convergence rates for adaptive boundary element methods with data approximation. Part II: hyper-singular integral equation

Michael Feischl, Thomas Führer, Michael Karkulik, J. Markus Melenk, and Dirk Praetorius


We analyze an adaptive boundary element method with fixed-order piecewise polynomials for the hyper-singular integral equation of the Laplace-Neumann problem in 2D and 3D which incorporates the approximation of the given Neumann data into the overall adaptive scheme. The adaptivity is driven by some residual-error estimator plus data oscillation terms. We prove convergence with quasi-optimal rates. Numerical experiments underline the theoretical results.
