Abstract

The object of this paper is to complete the results obtained in [3] by showing that the new mixed finite element that we have constructed in [3] also works for quadrilateral elements and to compare this method with the standard finite volume method. Estimates of optimal order are derived for both the new mixed finite element and an associated finite volume method.
