## Abstract:

The initial-boundary value problem for a linear parabolic equation with the Dirichlet boundary condition is solved approximately by applying the finite element discretization in the space dimension and three types of finite-difference discretizations in time: the backward, the Crank-Nicolson and the Calahan discretization. New error bounds are derived.## References
