  • Abstract

In this paper, we post-process the finite element solutions for parabolic equations to meet discrete conservation laws in element-level. The post-processing procedure are implemented by two different approaches: one is by computing a globally continuous flux function and the other is by computing the so-called finite-volume-element-like solution. Both approaches only require to solve a small linear system on each element of the underlying mesh. The post-processed flux converges to the exact flux with optimal convergence rates. Numerical computations verify our theoretical findings.
