  • Abstract

A simple post-processing technique for fifinite element methods with L2 -superconvergence is proposed. It provides more accurate approximations for solutions of twoand three-dimensional systems of partial differential equations. Approximate solutions can be constructed locally by using fifinite element approximations uh provided that uh is superconvergent for a locally defifined projection Phu. The construction is based on the least-squares fifitting algorithm and local L2 -projections. Error estimates are derived and numerical examples illustrate the effectiveness of this approach for fifinite element methods.
