. Optimized transmission conditions in domain decomposition methods have been the focus of intensive research efforts over the past decade. Traditionally, transmission conditions are optimized for two subdomain model configurations, and then used in practice for many subdomains. We optimize here transmission conditions for the first time directly for many subdomains for a class of complex diffusion problems. Our asymptotic analysis leads to closed form optimized transmission conditions for many… 



Optimizing transmission conditions for multiple subdomains in the Magnetotelluric Approximation of Maxwell's equations

It is enough for such diffusive type approximations of Maxwell’s equations to optimize transmission parameters in the simplified two subdomain decomposition setting to obtain good transmission conditions for optimized Schwarz methods for more general decompositions.

Optimized Schwarz waveform relaxation for advection reaction diffusion equations in two dimensions

The best approximation problem for the case of linear advection reaction diffusion equations in two spatial dimensions is studied in detail and comprehensively best approximation results for transmission conditions of Robin and Ventcel (higher order) type are proved.

Optimized Schwarz methods with general Ventcell transmission conditions for fully anisotropic diffusion with discrete duality finite volume discretizations

A new non-overlapping optimized Schwarz method for fully anisotropic diffusion problems is introduced, and it is found that the predicted optimized parameters work very well in practice, and that for certain anisotropies which are characterize, the new bounded domain analysis is important.

An optimized Schwarz method with two‐sided Robin transmission conditions for the Helmholtz equation

A new optimized Schwarz method without overlap in the 2d case is presented, which uses a different Robin condition for neighbouring subdomains at their common interface, and which is called two‐sided Robin condition.

Natural Domain Decomposition Algorithms for the Solution of Time-Harmonic Elastic Waves

This work proves that the classical Schwarz method is not convergent when applied to the Navier equations, and can thus not be used as an iterative solver, only as a preconditioner for a Krylov method, and introduces a new Schwarz method with adapted transmission conditions.

Optimized Schwarz methods with nonoverlapping circular domain decomposition

This work derives optimized zeroth and second order transmission conditions for a model elliptic operator in two dimensions, and shows why the straight interface analysis results, when properly scaled to include the curvature, are also successful for curved interfaces.

Asymptotic analysis of optimized Schwarz methods for maxwell’s equations with discontinuous coefficients

It is shown here how one can optimize transmission conditions to take benefit from the jumps in the coefficients of the problem, when they are aligned with the subdomain interface, and obtain methods which converge for two subdomains in certain situations independently of the mesh size.

Optimized Schwarz Methods for Model Problems with Continuously Variable Coefficients

The technique of separation of variables is used to study optimized Schwarz methods for a model problem with a continuously variable reaction term, and a similar analysis could be performed as well for many other problems with variable coefficients.

Analysis of the Parallel Schwarz Method for Growing Chains of Fixed-Sized Subdomains: Part I

It is proved numerically that the convergence of the Schwarz method in this case does not depend on the number of subdomains, even without coarse correction, by analyzing the Schwarz iteration matrices in Fourier space and evaluating corresponding norms in a simplified setting.

Analysis of parallel Schwarz algorithms for time-harmonic problems using block Toeplitz matrices

It is shown here that when impedance transmission conditions are used in the case of the algorithm applied to the equations with absorption, under certain assumptions, scalability can be achieved and no coarse space is required and this result is also true for the iterative version of the method at the continuous level.
