Based on the Uzawa algorithm, we consider an adaptive finite element method for the Stokes system. We prove linear convergence with optimal algebraic rates, if the arising linear systems are solved iteratively, e.g., by PCG. Our analysis avoids the use of efficiency estimates for the residual error estimator. Unlike prior work, our adaptive Uzawa algorithm can thus avoid to discretize the given data and does not rely on an interior node property for the refinement.
