Incompressible mixed finite elements for Stokes equations


We introduce some new families of finite element approximation for the stationary Stokes and Navier Stokes equations in a bounded domain in ℝ3. These elements can used tetahedrons or cubes. The approximation satisfie exactly the incompressibility condition.
