Time-multipatch discontinuous Galerkin space-time isogeometric analysis of parabolic evolution problems

Christoph Hofer, Ulrich Langer, Martin Neumüller, and Ioannis Toulopoulos


In this paper, we present a new time-multipatch discontinuous Galerkin Isogeometric Analysis (IgA) technology for solving parabolic initial-boundary problems in space and time simultaneously. We prove coercivity of the IgA variational problem with respect to a suitably chosen norm that together with boundedness, consistency, and approximation results yields a priori discretization error estimates in this norm. Furthermore, we provide efficient parallel generation and parallel multigrid solution technologies. Finally, we present first numerical results on massively parallel computers.
