Abstract : This paper addresses the implementation of general constraint boundary conditions for a system of equations by the p-version of the finite element method. By constraint boundary conditions the authors mean conditions where some relation between the components is prescribed at the boundary. Optimal error bounds are proven. Keywords: Convergence; Sobolev spaces.
