ABSTRACT

We study some theoretical aspects of Legendre polynomial chaos based finite element approximations of elliptic and parabolic linear stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) and provide a priori error estimates in tensor product Sobolev spaces that hold under appropriate regularity assumptions. Our analysis takes place in the setting of finite-dimensional noise, where the SPDE coefficients depend on a finite number of second-order random variables. We first derive a priori error estimates for finite element approximations of a class of linear elliptic SPDEs. Subsequently, we consider finite element approximations of parabolic SPDEs coupled with a Θ-weighted temporal discretization scheme. We establish conditions under which the time-stepping scheme is stable and derive a priori rates of convergence as a function of spatial, temporal, and stochastic discretization parameters. We later consider steady-state and time-dependent stochastic diffusion equations and illustrate how the general results provided here can be applied to specific SPDE models. Finally, we theoretically analyze primal and adjoint-based recovery of stochastic linear output functionals that depend on the solution of elliptic SPDEs and show that these schemes are superconvergent.
