If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Smith. Is it possible to obtain near-best approximations to solutions of linear operator equations in a general Banach space setting? Can this be done with guaranteed stability? In this seminar, I address these questions by considering nonstandard, nonlinear, Petrov-Galerkin discretizations. These methods are particularly useful for PDEs with rough data or nonsmooth solutions having discontinuities. I build on ideas of residual minimization and the recent theory of optimal Petrov-Galerkin methods in Hilbert-space settings. I will demonstrate that the implementable version of the Petrov-Galerkin formulation is naturally related to a mixed method with a monotone nonlinearity. In the setting of certain special Banach spaces, I will prove optimal a priori error estimates (a la Cea / Babuska), with constants depending on the geometry of the involved Banach spaces. This is joint work with Ignacio Muga of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso.
