Nonoscillatory and nondiffusive solution of convection problems by the iteratively reweighted leastsquares finite element method
In this paper we first introduce the leastsquares finite element method (LSFEM) for twodimensional steadystate pure convection problems with smooth solutions and compare the LSFEM with other finite element methods. We prove that the LSFEM has the same stability estimate as the original equation; i.e., the LSFEM has better control of the streamline derivative than the streamline upwinding PetrovGalerkin method. Numerical convergence rates are given to show that the LSFEM is almost optimal. Then we use this LSFEM as a framework to develop an iteratively reweighted leastsquares finite element method (IRLSFEM) to obtain nonoscillatory and nondiffusive solutions for problems withmore » 
Locally conservative leastsquares finite element methods for Darcy flows.
Leastsquares finiteelement methods for Darcy flow offer several advantages relative to the mixedGalerkin method: the avoidance of stability conditions between finiteelement spaces, the efficiency of solving symmetric and positive definite systems, and the convenience of using standard, continuous nodal elements for all variables. However, conventional C{sup o} implementations conserve mass only approximately and for this reason they have found limited acceptance in applications where locally conservative velocity fields are of primary interest. In this paper, we show that a properly formulated compatible leastsquares method offers the same level of local conservation as a mixed method. The price paid for gainingmore » 
Leastsquares finite element methods for quantum chromodynamics
A significant amount of the computational time in large Monte Carlo simulations of lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is spent inverting the discrete Dirac operator. Unfortunately, traditional covariant finite difference discretizations of the Dirac operator present serious challenges for standard iterative methods. For interesting physical parameters, the discretized operator is large and illconditioned, and has random coefficients. More recently, adaptive algebraic multigrid (AMG) methods have been shown to be effective preconditioners for Wilson's discretization of the Dirac equation. This paper presents an alternate discretization of the Dirac operator based on leastsquares finite elements. The discretization is systematically developed and physical propertiesmore »
