 September 9, 2003, 00:19 DG vs SUPG #1 pran Guest   Posts: n/a I need to solve convective dominated flows problem. If high order polynomial (chebyshev/Legendre) will be used as basis function, which is the best, Discontinuous Galekin (DG) or Streamline Upwind Petrov Galerkin (SUPG)?

 September 15, 2003, 07:34 Re: DG vs SUPG #3 pran Guest   Posts: n/a What is the meaning of "unbounded" ? I hear that Finite Volume is the lowest order of DG method (the basis function is constant), is it true!

 September 15, 2003, 08:22 Re: DG vs SUPG #4 Praveen Guest   Posts: n/a The constant in cell approximation in finite volumes is the lowest order approximation. Of course you can obtain higher order approximations by various reconstruction techniques. But what are the advantages of DG ?
