A rigorous convergence theory for Galerkin methods for a model Helmholtz problem

in Rd, d 2 {1, 2, 3} is presented. General conditions on the approximation properties of

the approximation space are stated that ensure quasi-optimality of the method. As an

application of the general theory, a full error analysis of the classical hp-version of the

finite element method (hp-FEM) is presented where the dependence on the mesh width

h, the approximation order p, and the wave number k is given explicitly. In particular, it

is shown that quasi-optimality is obtained under the conditions that kh/p is sufficiently

small and the polynomial degree p is at least O(log k).
