We construct and analyze an overlapping Schwarz preconditioner for elliptic problems discretized with isogeometric analysis. The preconditioner is based on partitioning the domain of the problem into overlapping subdomains, solving local isogeometric problems on these subdomains, and solving an additional coarse isogeometric problem associated with the subdomain mesh. We develop an $h$-analysis of the preconditioner, showing in particular that the resulting algorithm is scalable and its…

The results of several numerical experiments show that the convergence rate of the proposed preconditioning algorithm is independent of the number of subdomains $N$ and the spectral degree $p$ in case of generous overlap; otherwise it depends inversely on the overlap size.
