8V 2 S N : (7.4.17b) Yu 22, 23] used these arguments to prove asymptotic convergence of error estimates
to true errors for elliptic problems. Adjerid et al. 2, 3] obtained similar results for
transient parabolic systems. Proofs, in both cases, apply to a square region with square
elements of spacing h = 1= N . A typical result follows.
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.
