A nonsymmetric formulation of saddle-point systems is considered, and symmetric part preconditioning of the CG method is applied. Linear and superlinear convergence estimates are derived for the finite element solution of the Stokes problem and of Navier's equations of elasticity. Mesh independence of the estimates is obtained from proper Hilbert space operator background.
