Abstract
Babuska and Yu constructed a posteriori estimates for nite element dis-
cretization errors of linear elliptic problems utilizing a dichotomy principal
stating that the errors of odd-order approximations arise near element edges
as mesh spacing decreases while those of even-order approximations arise in
element interiors. We construct similar a posteriori estimates for the spatial
errors of nite element method-of-lines solutions of linear parabolic partial
di erential equations on square-element meshes. Error estimates computed in
this manner are proven to be asymptotically correct; thus, they converge in
strain energy under mesh re nement at the same rate as the actual errors.
