There is a growing interest in ensuring the reliability and accuracy of engineering data computed by the finite element method. Various adaptive and feedback schemes, which involve the computation of error indicators and error estimators, have been proposed by a number of investigators. Typically, such estimators provide some estimate of the absolute or relative contribution of an element to the error of approximation, measured in the natural norm of the formulation.
