Abstract

We describe a method to estimate the guaranteed error hounds of the finite element solutions for the Stokes problem in mathematically rigorous sense. We show that an a posteriori error can be computed by using the numerical estimates of a constant related to the so-called inf-sup condition for the continuous problem. Also a method to derive the constructive a priori error bounds are considered. Some numerical examples which confirm us the expected rate of convergence are presented.
