We consider the symmetric FEM-BEM coupling for the numerical solution of a (nonlinear) interface problem for the 2D Laplacian. We introduce some new a posteriori error estimators based on the (h − h/2)-error estimation strategy. In particular, these include the approximation error for the boundary data, which allows to work with discrete boundary integral operators only. Using the concept of estimator reduction, we prove that the proposed adaptive algorithm is convergent in the sense that it drives the underlying error estimator to zero. Numerical experiments underline the reliability and efficiency of the considered adaptive mesh-refinement.
