The main goal of this paper is to establish the convergence of mimetic discretizations of the first-order system that describes linear diffusion. Specifically, mimetic discretiza-tions based on the support-operators methodology (SO) have been applied successfully in a number of application areas, including diffusion and electromagnetics. These(More)
SUMMARY Although there have been significant advances in robust algebraic multigrid methods in recent years, numerical studies and emerging hardware architectures continue to favor structured-grid approaches. Specifically, implementations of logically structured robust variational multigrid algorithms, such as the Black Box Multigrid (BoxMG) solver, have(More)
Certain classes of nodal methods and mixed-hybrid nite element methods lead to equivalent , robust and accurate discretizations of 2 nd order elliptic PDEs. However, widespread popularity of these discretizations has been hindered by the awkward linear systems which result. The present work overcomes this awkwardness and develops preconditioners which yield(More)
