abstract = {We consider finite element approximations to the optimal constant for the Hardy inequality with exponent $p=2$ in bounded domains of dimension $n=1$ or $n\geq 3$. For finite element spaces of piecewise linear and continuous functions on a mesh of size $h$, we prove that the approximate Hardy constant, $S{\_}h^n$, converges to the optimal Hardy constant $S^n$ no slower than $O(1/\abs{\log h})$. We also show that the convergence is no faster than $O(1/\abs{\log h}^2)$ if $n=1$ or if $n\geq 3$, the domain is the unit ball, and the finite element discretization exploits the rotational symmetry of the problem. Our estimates are compared to exact values for $S{\_}h^n$ obtained computationally.
