Full discretisation of second-order nonlinear evolution equations: strong convergence and applications

Etienne Emmrich EMAIL logo and David Šiška


Recent results on convergence of fully discrete approximations combining the Galerkin method with the explicit-implicit Euler scheme are extended to strong convergence under additional monotonicity assumptions. It is shown that these abstract results, formulated in the setting of evolution equations, apply, for example, to the partial differential equation for vibrating membrane with nonlinear damping and to another partial differential equation that is similar to one of the equations used to describe martensitic transformations in shape-memory alloys. Numerical experiments are performed for the vibrating membrane equation with nonlinear damping which support the convergence results.
