Abstract: Asymptotic expansions for the RT (Raviart-Thomas) mixed finite element approximation by the lowest-order rectangular element associated with a second-order elliptic equation on a rectangular domain are derived. Superconvergence for the vector field along the Gauss lines is obtained as a result of the expansion. A procedure of postprocessed extrapolation is presented for the scalar field, as well as procedures of pure Richardson extrapolation for both the vector and the scalar fields.
