In this article, we analyze some residual-based stabilization techniques for the transient Stokes problem when considering anisotropic time–space discretizations. We define an anisotropic time–space discretization as a family of time–space partitions that does not satisfy the condition with uniform with respect to and . Standard residual-based stabilization techniques are motivated by a multiscale approach, approximating the effect of the subscales onto the large scales. One of the approximations is to consider the subscales quasi-static (neglecting their time derivative). It is well known that these techniques are unstable for anisotropic time–space discretizations. We show that the use of dynamic subscales (where the subscales time derivatives are not neglected) solves the problem, and prove optimal convergence and stability results that are valid for anisotropic time–space discretizations. Also the improvements related to the use of orthogonal subscales are addressed.
