English abstract:
Only very recently, Sayas (SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 2009) proved that the Johnson-NŽedŽelec one-equation
approach from (Math. Comp. 1980) provides a stable coupling of finite element method (FEM) and boundary
element method (BEM). In our work, we now adapt the analytical results for different a posteriori error
estimates developed for the symmetric FEM-BEM coupling to the Johnson-NŽedŽelec coupling. More precisely,
we analyze the weighted-residual error estimator, the two-level error estimator, and different versions of
(h − h/2)-based error estimators. In numerical experiments, we use these estimators to steer h-adaptive
algorithms, and compare the effectivity of the different approaches.
