Abstract: We consider a finite element method for the Stokes problem on a rectangular domain based on piecewise bilinear velocities and piecewise constant pressures on a uniform rectangular grid. It is shown that by a simple stabilization strategy the method can be implemented in a convergent multigrid procedure.
