English abstract:
We extend a result of Nicaise [SIAM J. Numer. Anal., 43 (2005), pp.
1481-1503] for the a posteriori error estimation of the cell-centered
finite volume method for the numerical solution of elliptic problems.
Having computed the piecewise constant finite volume solution $u_h$,
we compute a Morley-type interpolant $\mathcal{I} u_h$. For the exact
solution $u$, the energy error $\norm{\nabla_{\mathcal{T}}
(u-\mathcal{I} u_h)}{L^2}$ can be controlled efficiently and reliably
by a residual-based a posteriori error estimator $\eta$. The local
contributions of $\eta$ are used to steer an adaptive mesh-refining
algorithm. A model example serves the Laplace equation in two
dimensions with mixed Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions.
