For the general class of residual distribution (RD) schemes, including many finite element (such as continuous/discontinuous Galerkin) and flux reconstruction methods, an approach to construct entropy conservative/ dissipative semidiscretizations by adding suitable correction terms has been proposed by Abgrall ((2018) ). In this work, the correction terms are characterized as solutions of certain optimization problems and are adapted to the SBP-SAT framework, focusing on discontinuous Galerkin methods. Novel generalizations to entropy inequalities, multiple constraints, and kinetic energy preservation for the Euler equations are developed and tested in numerical experiments. For all of these optimization problems, explicit solutions are provided. Additionally, the correction approach is applied for the first time to obtain a fully discrete entropy conservative/dissipative RD scheme. Here, the application of the deferred correction (DeC) method for the time integration is essential. This paper can be seen as describing a systematic method to construct structure preserving discretization, at least for the considered example.
