Discrete maximum principles for the FEM solution of some nonlinear parabolic problems

István Faragó, János Karátson, and Sergey Korotov

Abstract

Discrete maximum principles are established for finite element approximations of nonlinear parabolic problems. The conditions on the space and time discretizations are similar to the usual conditions for linear problems.
