Space-Time Finite Element Methods for Parabolic Problems

We propose and analyze a space-time finite element method for the numerical solution of parabolic evolution equations. This approach allows the use of general and unstructured space-time finite elements which do not require any tensor product structure. The stability of the numerical scheme is based on a stability condition which holds for standard finite element spaces. We also provide related a priori error estimates which are confirmed by numerical experiments.
