Abstract : This paper presents two novel contributions on the recently introduced Mixed High-Order (MHO) methods [D. Di Pietro, A. Ern, hal-00918482]. We first address the hybridization of the MHO method for a scalar diffusion problem and obtain the corresponding primal formulation. Based on the hybridized MHO method, we then design a novel, arbitrary order method for the Stokes problem on general meshes. A full convergence analysis is carried out showing that, when independent polynomials of degree k are used as unknowns (at elements for the pressure and at faces for each velocity omponent), the energy-norm of the velocity and the L2-norm of the pressure converge with order k+1, while the L2-norm of the velocity (super-)converges with order k+2. The latter property is not shared by other methods based on a similar choice of unknowns. The theoretical results are numerically validated in two space dimensions on both standard and polygonal meshes.
