We present a hybridization technique for summation-by-parts finite difference methods with weak enforcement of interface and boundary conditions for second order elliptic partial differential equations. The method is based on techniques from the hybridized discontinuous Galerkin literature where local and global problems are defined for the volume and trace grid points, respectively. By using a Schur complement technique the volume points can be eliminated, which drastically reduces the system… Expand


Stable Coupling of Nonconforming, High-Order Finite Difference Methods
Energy stability of the coupled numerical method is proven for the case of curved, nonconforming block-to-block interfaces and a provably energy stable coupling between curvilinear finite difference methods and a curved-triangle discontinuous Galerkin method is demonstrated. Expand
High Order Finite Difference Methods for the Wave Equation with Non-conforming Grid Interfaces
By imposing an additional constraint on the interface operators, an energy estimate of the numerical scheme for the second order wave equation is derived and eigenvalue analyses are carried out to investigate the additional constraint and its relation to stability. Expand

Unified Hybridization of Discontinuous Galerkin, Mixed, and Continuous Galerkin Methods for Second Order Elliptic Problems
A unifying framework for hybridization of finite element methods for second order elliptic problems is introduced, thanks to which it is possible to see how to devise novel methods displaying very localized and simple mortaring techniques, as well as methods permitting an even further reduction of the number of globally coupled degrees of freedom.
