Abstract

This article is dedicated to the adaptive wavelet boundary element method. It computes an approximation to the unknown solution of the boundary integral equation under consideration with a rate $N^{−s}_{dof}$, whenever the solution can be approximated with this rate in the setting determined by the underlying wavelet basis. The computational cost scale linearly in the number $N_{dof}$ of degrees of freedom. Goal-oriented error estimation for evaluating linear output functionals of the solution is also considered. An algorithm is proposed that approximately evaluates a linear output functional with a rate $N^{−(s+t)}_{dof}$, whenever the primal solution can be approximated with a rate $N^{-s}_{dof}$ and the dual solution can be approximated with a rate $N^{−t}_{dof}$, while the cost still scale linearly in $N_{dof}$. Numerical results for an acoustic scattering problem and for the point evaluation of the potential in case of the Laplace equation are reported to validate and quantify the approach.
