Abstract
This paper applies bilinear immersed finite elements (IFEs) in the interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods for solving a second order elliptic equation with discontinuous coefficient. A discontinuous bilinear IFE space is constructed and applied to both the symmetric and nonsymmetric interior penalty DG formulations. The new methods can solve an interface problem on a Cartesian mesh independent of the interface with local refinement at any locations needed even if the interface has a nontrivial geometry. Numerical examples are provided to show features of these methods.
