AB - The Poisson equation with non-homogeneous unilateral condition on the boundary is solved by means of finite elements. The primal variational problem is approximated on the basis of linear triangular elements, and $O(h)$-convergence is proved provided the exact solution is regular enough. For the dual problem piecewise linear divergence-free approximations are employed and $O(h^{3/2})$-convergence proved for a regular solution. Some a posteriori error estimates are also presented.
