Radiative heating of a glass plate: the semi-discrete problem (second revision)

  • Luc PaquetEmail author


In a preceding paper (MSIA, 2012), we have studied the radiative heating of a glass plate. We have proved existence and uniqueness of the solution. Here, we want to study the semi-discrete problem and to prove a priori error estimates. Previously, in that purpose, we have to study the regularity of the solution to the exact problem and of its time derivative. A very important property, Proposition 13, is remarked concerning our elliptic projection, the milestone in deriving the a priori error estimates. A numerical test corroborating our theoretical a priori bounds is given.
