# Some errors estimates for the box method

@article{Bank1987SomeEE, title={Some errors estimates for the box method}, author={Randolph E. Bank and Donald J. Rose}, journal={SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis}, year={1987}, volume={24}, pages={777-787} }

We define and analyze several variants of the box method for discretizing elliptic boundary value problems in the plane. Our estimates show the error to be comparable to a standard Galerkin finite element method using piecewise linear polynomials.
