We prove that for compactly perturbed elliptic problems, where the corre-sponding bilinear form satisﬁes a Gårding inequality, adaptive mesh-reﬁnement is capa-ble of overcoming the preasymptotic behavior and eventually leads to convergence with optimal algebraic rates. As an important consequence of our analysis, one does not have to deal with the a priori assumption that the underlying meshes are suﬃciently ﬁne. Hence, the overall conclusion of our results is that adaptivity has stabilizing eﬀects and can overcome possibly pessimistic restrictions on the meshes. In particular, our analysis covers adaptive mesh-reﬁnement for the ﬁnite element discretization of the Helmholtz equation from where our interest originated.
