English abstract:
We show that optimal L2- convergence in the infinite element method on
quasi-uniform meshes can be achieved if, for some s0 > 1/2, the boundary value problem has the mapping property H−1+s → H1+s for s ∈ [0, s0]. The lack of full elliptic regularity in the dual problem has to be compensated by additional regularity of the exact solution. Furthermore, we analyze for a Dirichlet problem the approximation of the normal derivative on the boundary without convexity
assumption on the domain. We show that (up to logarithmic fators) the optimal rate is obtained.
