abstract = {In this paper we analyze several first-order systems of
Oseen-type equations that are obtained from the time-dependent
incompressible Navier-Stokes equations after introducing the additional
vorticity and possibly total pressure variables, time-discretizing the
time derivative and linearizing the non-linear terms. We apply the [L-2,
L-2, L-2] least-squares finite element scheme to approximate the
solutions of these Oseen-type equations assuming homogeneous velocity
boundary conditions. All of the associated least-squares energy
functionals are defined to be the sum of squared L-2 norms of the
residual equations over an appropriate products space. We first prove
that the homogeneous least-squares functionals are coercive in the H-1 x
L-2 x L-2 norm for the velocity, vorticity, and pressure, but only
continuous in the H-1 x H-1 x H-1 norm for these variables. although
equivalence between the homogeneous least-squares functionals and one of
the above two product norms is not achieved, by using these a priori
estimates and additional finite element analysis we are nevertheless
able to prove that the least-squares method produces an optimal rate of
convergence in the H-1 norm for velocity and suboptimal rate of
convergence in the L-2 norm for vorticity and pressure. numerical
experiments with various Reynolds numbers that support the theoretical
error estimates are presented. In addition, numerical solutions to the
time-dependent incompressible Navier-Stokes problem are given to
demonstrate the accuracy of the semi-discrete [L-2, L-2, L-2]
least-squares finite element approach.
