An additive Schwarz method for finite-element anisotropic elliptic problems

An additive Schwarz method for finite-element anisotropic elliptic problems

A finite-element approximation of anisotropic second order elliptic problems on a region, which is a union of rectangles, is discussed. The coefficients are piecewise constant on rectangular subregions of the original region. The additive Schwarz method (AMS) with minimal overlap for solving the resulting systems is described and analyzed. It uses three coarse spaces, standard and two special.

A rate of convergence of the method is of the order of *(H/h) ^{1/2}*
when
