Abstract: We consider finite element projection methods for linear partial differential equations, in which the spaces of trial functions and test functions may be different. In addition to approximation and smoothness properties, conditions implying equality of dimensions and uniform coerciveness are required, the most important of which resembles a strong form of an inverse assumption.

Our results provide a mechanism for the difference in the rate of convergence of Galerkin procedures with cubic splines and Hermite cubics, applied to first order symmetric hyperbolic problems [13].
