Superconvergence of triangular mixed finite element methods for nonlinear optimal control problems

Zuliang Lua,*, Shuhua Zhangb

ABSTRACT:     In this paper, we investigate the superconvergence of nonlinear elliptic optimal control problems by using triangular mixed finite element methods. The state and the co-state are approximated by the lowest order Raviart-Thomas mixed finite element spaces and the control is approximated by piecewise constant functions. We obtain the superconvergence of O(h3/2) for the control variable and coupled state variable. Numerical results demonstrating these superconvergence results are also presented.
