Convergence of simplified and stabilized mixed element formats based on bubble function for the stokes problem

  • Luo Zhen-dong
  • Zhu Jiang


Two simplified and stabilized mixed element formats for the Stokes problem are derived by bubble function, and their convergence, i. e., error analysis, are proved. These formats can save more freedom degrees than other usual formats.

Key words
