  • Abstract

In this paper, we will investigate the error estimates and the superconvergence property of mixed finite element methods for a semilinear elliptic control problem with an integral constraint on control. The state and co-state are approximated by the lowest order Raviart-Thomas mixed finite element and the control variable is approximated by piecewise constant functions. We derive some superconvergence properties for the control variable and the state variables. Moreover, we derive $L^∞$- and $H^{-1}$-error estimates both for the control variable and the state variables. Finally, a numerical example is given to demonstrate the theoretical results.
