Abstract: Finite element method is probably the most popular numerical method used in different fields of applications nowadays. While approximation properties of the classical finite element method, as well as its various modifications, are well understood, stability of the method is still a crucial problem in practice. Therefore, alternative approaches based not on an approximation of continuous differential equations, but working directly with discrete structures associated with these equations, have gained an increasing interest in recent years. Finite element exterior calculus is one of such approaches. The finite element exterior calculus utilises tools of algebraic topology, such as de Rham cohomology and Hodge theory, to address the stability of the continuous problem. By its construction, the finite element exterior calculus is limited to triangulation based on simplicial complexes. However, practical applications often require triangulations containing elements of more general shapes. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the finite element exterior calculus to overcome the restriction to simplicial complexes. In this paper, the script geometry, a recently introduced new kind of discrete geometry and calculus, is used as a basis for the further extension of the finite element exterior calculus.
