The special rectangular partitions enable the finite element solutions \$u_h\$ more efficient in interpolation of the true solution for Elliptic equation \$u_I\$. The convergence rates of \$|u_h-u_I|_1\$ are one or two orders higher than the optimal convergence rates. For post-processings we construct higher order interpolation operation \$Pi_p\$ to reach superconvergence \$|u-Pi_p u_h|_1\$. To our best knowledge, we at the first time provided the a posteriori interpolant formulas of Adini's elements and biquadratic Lagrange elements to obtain the global superconvergence, and at the first time reported the numerical verification for supercloseness \$O(h^4)-O(h^5) \$, global superconvergence \$O(h^5)\$ in \$H^1\$-norm and the high rates \$O(h^6|ln h|)\$ in the infinity norm for Poisson's equation(i.e., \$-Delta u = f\$).Since the finite element methods is fail to deal with the singularity problems, in the dissertation, the combinations of the Ritz-Galerkin method and the finite element methods are used for the singularity problem, i.e., Motz's problem. To couple two methods along their common boundary, we adopt the simplified hybrid, penalty, and penalty plus hybrid techniques. The analysis are made in the dissertation to derive the almost best global superconvergence \$O(h^{p+2-delta})\$ in \$H^1\$-norm, \$0
