Abstract

In this paper, we construct and analyze finite element methods for the three dimensional Monge-Ampère equation. We derive methods using the Lagrange finite element space such that the resulting discrete linearizations are symmetric and stable. With this in hand, we then prove the well-posedness of the method, as well as derive quasi-optimal error estimates. We also present some numerical experiments that back up the theoretical findings. © EDP Sciences, SMAI, 2012.
