Abstract: We derive and analyze high order discontinuous Galerkin methods for second-order elliptic problems on implicitely defined surfaces in R^3. This is done by carefully adapting the unified discontinuous Galerkin framework of [D.N. Arnold, F. Brezzi, B. Cockburn, and L.D. Marini, SIAM J. Numer. Anal., 2002] on a triangulated surface approximating the smooth surface. We prove optimal error estimates in both a (mesh dependent) energy and L^2 norms.
