[For part V see the authors, ibid. 59, 85-99 (1986; Zbl 0622.76077).]
An SUPG-type finite element method for linear symmetric multidimensional advective-diffusive systems is described and analyzed. Optimal and near optimal error estimates are obtained for the complete range of advective- diffusive behavior.
