Judicious use of interval arithmetic, combined with careful pen and paper estimates, leads to effective strategies for computer assisted analysis of nonlinear operator equations. The method of radii polynomials is an efficient tool for bounding the smallest and largest neighborhoods on which a Newton-like operator associated with a nonlinear equation is a contraction mapping. The method has been used to study solutions of ordinary, partial, and delay differential equations such as equilibria, periodic orbits, solutions of initial value problems, heteroclinic and homoclinic connecting orbits in the C k category of functions. In the present work we adapt the method of radii polynomials to the analytic category. For ease of exposition we focus on studying periodic solutions in Cartesian products of infinite sequence spaces. We derive the radii polynomials for some specific application problems, and give a number of computer assisted proofs in the analytic framework.
We derive and analyze a hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method for approximating weak solutions to the equations of time-harmonic linear elasticity on a bounded Lipschitz domain in three dimensions. The real symmetry of the stress tensor is strongly enforced and its coefficients as well as those of the displacement vector field are approximated simultaneously at optimal convergence with respect to the choice of approximating spaces, wavenumber, and mesh size. Sufficient conditions are given so that the system is indeed transferable onto a global hybrid variable that, for larger polynomial degrees, may be approximated via a smaller-dimensional space than the original variables. We construct several variants of this method and discuss their advantages and disadvantages, and give a systematic approach to the error analysis for these methods. We touch briefly on the application of this error analysis to the time-dependent problem, and finally, we examine two different implementations of the method over various polynomial degrees and numerically demonstrate the convergence properties proven herein.
