  • Abstract

Two-grid finite element methods with the Crank-Nicolson Galerkin scheme for nonlinear parabolic equations are studied. It is shown that the methods have convergence order $\mathcal{O}$($h$ + $H$2 + (∆$t$)2) in $H$1-norm, so that a larger time step can be used in numerical calculations. In addition to saving computing time, the algorithms provide a good approximation of the problem solution and numerical examples confirm their efficiency.

  • Keywords
