Recovered Finite Element Methods (R-FEM) have been recently introduced in Georgoulis and Pryer [Comput. Methods Appl. Mech. Eng. 332 (2018) 303–324]. for meshes consisting of simplicial and/or box-type elements. Here, utilising the flexibility of the R-FEM framework, we extend their definition to polygonal and polyhedral meshes in two and three spatial dimensions, respectively. An attractive feature of this framework is its ability to produce arbitrary order polynomial conforming discretizations, yet involving only as many degrees of freedom as discontinuous Galerkin methods over general polygonal/polyhedral meshes with potentially many faces per element. A priori error bounds are shown for general linear, possibly degenerate, second order advection-diffusion-reaction boundary value problems. A series of numerical experiments highlight the good practical performance of the proposed numerical framework.
