A New Probabilistic Interpretation of the Bramble–Hilbert Lemma

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to provide new perspectives on relative finite element accuracy which is usually based on the asymptotic speed of convergence comparison when the mesh size h goes to zero. Starting from a geometrical reading of the error estimate due to the Bramble-Hilbert lemma, we derive two probability distributions that estimate the relative accuracy, considered as a random variable, between two Lagrange finite elements P k and P m (k < m). We establish mathematical properties of these probabilistic distributions and we get new insights which, among others, show that P k or P m is more likely accurate than the other, depending on the value of the mesh size h.
