Fictitious domains, \(\text{H(div)}\) finite elements and Neumann condition: The inf-sup condition. (Domaines fictifs, éléments finis \(\text{H(div)}\) et condition de Neumann: Le problème de la condition inf-sup.) (French. Abridged English version) Zbl 0931.65112
Summary: Approximation of the Neumann problem for a second-order elliptic operator by a fictitious domain method with a Lagrange multiplier on the boundary is considered. The problem is written in its vectorial dual formulation and H(div) mixed finite elements for the vector unknown and H\(^{{1\over 2}}\) conforming elements for the multiplier are used. The uniform inf-sup condition is demonstrated under a compatibility condition between surface and volume meshes.
