Talk Abstract
Domain decomposition for nonconforming plate elements

Susanne Brenner,, University of South Carolina


The simplest plate elements are nonconforming, but the domain decomposition theory developed for conforming finite elements are not directly applicable to them. The complications due to the nonconformity of these elements can be overcome by exploiting their ``conforming relatives''. In this talk we will present results on the two-level additive Schwarz method (overlapping) and the balanced domain decomposition method (nonoverlapping) for nonconforming plate elements.
