English abstract:
We show quasi-optimal a priori convergence results in the $L^2$-norm on interfaces for the approximation of the normal component of the flux in mixed finite element methods.
Compared to standard estimates for this problem class, an additional factor $\sqrt{h} | \log h |$ in the {\sl a priori} bound for the flux variable is obtained by using new upper estimates in strips of width $O(h)$ near these interfaces. An important role in the analysis play anisotropic and weighted norms. Numerical results including an application to the Darcy--Stokes coupling illustrate our theoretical results.
