Quadratic convergence for cell-centered grids. (English) Zbl 0651.65086
Rectangular cell-centered finite difference approximations of a plane pressure-flow equation in a rectangular region with no-flow conditions at the boundary are considered. Despite a formal inconsistency in the finite difference equations, due to the use of cell-centered rather than point- distributed grids, it is shown that the solution errors are $O(h\sp 2)$ when the mesh width $h\to 0$. The methods are quite elementary and rely upon an explicit treatment of truncation error terms which are not $O(h\sp 2)$.
