### Finite-element discretizations of a two-dimensional grade-two fluid model

We propose and analyze several finite-element schemes for solving a grade-two fluid model, with a tangential boundary condition, in a two-dimensional polygon. The exact problem is split into a generalized Stokes problem and a transport equation, in such a way that it always has a solution without restriction on the shape of the domain and on the size of the data. The first scheme uses divergence-free discrete velocities and a centered discretization of the transport term, whereas the other schemes...
