The inf-sup condition for the mapped \(Q_k-P_{k-1}^{\text{disc}}\) element in arbitrary space dimensions. (English) Zbl 1016.65073
The authors consider the numerical solution of the Stokes and Navier Stokes equations by means of finite elements. They discuss the use of the \(Q_k-P_{k-1}^{\text{disc}}\) element and the stability of the process when calculating the velocity and pressure fields of incompressible flow. No actual physical illustration of the ideas is given.
