Flux-upwind stabilization of the discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin formulation with Lagrange multipliers for advection-diffusion problems
ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique, Volume 39 (2005) no. 6, p. 1087-1114

In this work we consider the dual-primal Discontinuous Petrov-Galerkin (DPG) method for the advection-diffusion model problem. Since in the DPG method both mixed internal variables are discontinuous, a static condensation procedure can be carried out, leading to a single-field nonconforming discretization scheme. For this latter formulation, we propose a flux-upwind stabilization technique to deal with the advection-dominated case. The resulting scheme is conservative and satisfies a discrete maximum principle under standard geometrical assumptions on the computational grid. A convergence analysis is developed, proving first-order accuracy of the method in a discrete H 1 -norm, and the numerical performance of the scheme is validated on benchmark problems with sharp internal and boundary layers.
