hp-Optimal discontinuous Galerkin methods for linear elliptic problems

The aim of this paper is to overcome the well-known lack of p-optimality in hp-version discontinuous Galerkin (DG) discretizations for the numerical approximation of linear elliptic problems. For this purpose, we shall present and analyze a class of hp-DG methods that is closely related to other DG schemes, however, combines both p-optimal jump penalty as well as lifting stabilization. We will prove that the resulting error estimates are optimal with respect to both the local element sizes and polynomial degrees.
