Abstract: In order to solve the boundary value problems of elliptic equations, especially with singularities and unbounded domains, the simplified hybrid-combined method, which is equivalent to the coupling method of Zienkiewicz et al. [15], is presented. This is a combination of the Ritz-Galerkin and the finite element methods. Its optimal error estimates are proved in this paper, and the solution strategy of its algebraic equation system is discussed.
