Abstract : In this paper, which is part 2 in a series of two, the investigation of the Galerkin finite element solution to the Helmholtz equation is continued. While part 1 contained results on the hversion with piecewise linear approximation, the present part deals with approximation spaces of order p greater than or equal 1. The method is assumed to be uniform both w.r. to h and p. The results are presented on a onedimensional model problem with Dirichlet/Robin boundary conditions. In particular there are proven stability estimates, both w.r. to data of higher regularity and data that is bounded in lower norms. (AN)
