Variational methods for wavelets, with S. Dahlke

Show Summary Details


Chapter 9 studies S. Dahlke studies wavelet methods. This is the first presentation in this generality and is appropriate for nonlinear problems and bifurcation for elliptic PDEs. As a consequence of the difficulties with evaluating nonlinear functionals and operators with wavelet arguments, general quasilinear, and fully nonlinear problems are limited, and excluded, respectively. With this exception, the whole spectrum of corresponding wavelet methods is shown to be stable and convergent. Again the corresponding linearized operator has to be boundedly invertible. This chapter finishes with adaptive wavelet methods. In contrast to Chapter 6, nonlinear approximation, and wavelet matrix compression are employed for adaptive descent iterations.
