English abstract:
For the reference triangle or tetrahedron $T$, we study the stability properties of the $L^2$-projection $\Pi_N$ onto the space of polynomials of degree $N$. We show $\|\Pi_N u\|_{L^2(\partial T)}^2 \leq C \|u\|_{L^2(T)} \|u\|_{H^1(T)}$ and $\|\Pi_N u\|_{H^1(T)} \leq C (N+1)^{1/2} \|u\|_{H^1(T)}$.
This implies optimal convergence rates for the approximation error $\|u - \Pi_N u u\|_{L^2(\partial T)}$ for all $u \in H^k(T)$, $k > 1/2$.
