**Geometric Transformation of Finite Element Methods: Theory and Applications**

by M. Holst, M. Licht

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2018**Number of pages**: 21

**Description**:

We present a new technique to apply finite element methods to partial differential equations over curved domains. Our main result is that a recently developed broken Bramble-Hilbert lemma is key in harnessing regularity in the physical problem to prove higher-order finite element convergence rates for the parametric problem.
