In this paper, we develop the adaptive interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin method based on a new a posteriori error estimate for the second-order elliptic boundary-value problems. The new a posteriori error estimate is motivated from the smoothing iteration of the m-time Gauss-Seidel iterative method, and it is used to construct the adaptive finite element method. The efficiency and robustness of the proposed adaptive method is demonstrated by extensive numerical experiments.
