Abstract

We establish optimal L-error estimate for a class of variational inequalities (VIs) with nonlinear source term, using a very simple argument mainly based on the discrete L-stability property with respect to the right-hand side in elliptic VIs. We also show that the same approach extends to the corresponding noncoercive problems and optimal uniform convergence order is obtained as well.
