  • Abstract

This paper investigates construction and approximation properties of the locally divergence-free (LDF) finite elements. Numerical stability of the natural and normalized bases for the LDF elements is analyzed. Error estimates about the jumps and the total divergence of the localized $L_2$-projection are proved and validated through numerical examples.

  • Keywords

approximation property, locally divergence-free (LDF), localized $L_2$-projection, solenoidal.
