. 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.

Optimized Schwarz Methods with Elliptical Domain Decompositions

Over the past decade, partial differential equation models in elliptical geometries have become a focus of interest in several scientific and engineering applications: the classical studies of flow

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.

Optimized Schwarz Methods with Overlap for the Helmholtz Equation

This work presents here for the first time a complete analysis of optimized Schwarz methods with overlap for the Helmholtz equation, and obtains closed form asymptotically optimized transmission conditions for the case of two subdomains.

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.
