Least squares solvers for ill-posed PDEs that are conditionally stable
This paper is concerned with the design and analysis of least squares solvers for ill-posed PDEs that are conditionally stable. The norms and the regularization term used in the least squares functional are determined by the ingredients of the conditional stability assumption. We are then able to establish a general error bound that, in view of the conditional stability assumption, is qualitatively the best possible, without assuming consistent data. The price for these advantages is to handle dual norms which reduces to verifying suitable inf-sup stability. This, in turn, is done by constructing appropriate Fortin projectors for all sample scenarios. The theoretical findings are illustrated by numerical experiments.
