The paper is devoted to the convergence analysis of a well-known cell-centered Finite Volume Method (FVM) for a convection-diffusion problem in . This FVM is based on Voronoi boxes and exponential fitting. To prove the convergence of the FVM, we use a new nonconforming Petrov-Galerkin Finite Element Method (FEM) for which the system of linear equations coincides completely with that of the FVM. Thus, by proving convergence properties of the FEM we obtain similar ones for the FVM. For the error estimation of the FEM well-known statements have to be modified.
