We present new a priori error analyses of the coupling of the Raviart-Thomas (RT) method and BEM as well as of the coupling of the hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) method with BEM. The novel features of the analysis of the RT-BEM coupling are the superconvergence estimates for the scalar approximation of the interior problem and new bounds in weak and strong norms for the boundary variables. The analysis of the HDG-BEM coupling is the first analysis of this coupling and shows that the coupling provides approximations with the same convergence properties as those of the RT-BEM coupling.
