#### Semi-discrete and fully discrete HDG methods for Burgers' equation

##### Zimo Zhu, Gang Chen, Xiaoping Xie

This paper proposes semi-discrete and fully discrete hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) methods for the Burgers' equation in two and three dimensions. In the spatial discretization, we use piecewise polynomials of degrees $k \ (k \geq 1), k-1$ and $l \ (l=k-1; k)$ to approximate the scalar function, flux variable and the interface trace of scalar function, respectively. In the full discretization method, we apply a backward Euler scheme for the temporal discretization. Optimal a priori error estimates are derived. Numerical experiments are presented to support the theoretical results.
