Abstract: We prove local and pointwise error estimates for the local discontinuous Galerkin method applied to the Stokes problem in two and three dimensions. By using techniques originally developed by A. Schatz [Math. Comp., 67 (1998), 877-899] to prove pointwise estimates for the Laplace equation, we prove optimal weighted pointwise estimates for both the velocity and the pressure for domains with smooth boundaries.
