The time-dependent Stokes equations in two- or three-dimensional bounded domains are discretized by the backward Euler scheme in time and finite elements in space. The error of this discretization is bounded globally from above and locally from below by the sum of two types of computable error indicators, the first one being linked to the time discretization and the second one to the space discretization.
