Abstract

A new mixed finite element method is formulated for the Stokes equations, in which the two components of the velocity and the pressure are defined on different meshes. First-order error estimates are obtained for both the velocity and the pressure. Also, the well-known MAC method is derived from the resulting finite element method.
