In their 2006 paper, Wang and Xu develop a convergence theory for nonconforming finite element methods. Moreover, they explicitly construct consistent FE spaces of minimal polynomial degree for the discretization of the Sobolev spaces $H^m(\mathbb{R}^n)$ for $n\ge m$ on simplicial meshes.

Their main results will be presented in this talk.
