Adjerid et al. 2, 3] obtained similar results for transient parabolic systems. Proofs, in both cases, apply to a square region with square p elements of spacing h = 1= N . A typical result follows. 1 N Theorem 7.4.1. Let u 2 HE \ H p+2 and U 2 SE be solutions of (7.4.2) using complete piecewise-bi-polynomial functions of order p. 1.
