Low-order nonconforming Galerkin methods will be analyzed for second-order elliptic equations subjected to Robin, Dirichlet, or Neumann boundary conditions. Both simplicial and rectangular elements will be considered in two and three dimensions. The simplicial elements will be based on P 1 , as for conforming elements; however, it is necessary to introduce new elements in the rectangular case. Optimal order error estimates are demonstrated in all cases with respect to a broken norm in H 1… 
Nonconforming Galerkin methods for the Helmholtz equation
Nonconforming Galerkin methods for a Helmholtz‐like problem arising in seismology are discussed both for standard simplicial linear elements and for several new rectangular elements related to

Nonconforming finite elements of higher order satisfying a new compatibility condition
The novelty of this approach is that a new integral compatibility condition of the discrete functions across the element faces is introduced such that it can be solely treated on the reference element once for all faces of the grid.
