  author={Nicolas Marsic and Christophe Geuzaine and Herbert De Gersem},
In this paper we discuss different transmission operators for the non-overlapping Schwarz method which are suited for solving the time-harmonic Helmholtz equation in cavities ( i.e. closed domains which do not feature an outgoing wave condition). Such problems are heavily impacted by back-propagating waves which are often neglected when devising optimized transmission operators for the Schwarz method. This work explores new operators taking into account those back-propagating waves and compares… 


Optimized Schwarz Methods without Overlap for the Helmholtz Equation
A variant of the Schwarz method which converges without overlap for the Helmholtz equation is studied, and it is shown that the key ingredients for such an algorithm are the transmission conditions, which lead to convergence of the algorithm in a finite number of steps.
A Class of Iterative Solvers for the Helmholtz Equation: Factorizations, Sweeping Preconditioners, Source Transfer, Single Layer Potentials, Polarized Traces, and Optimized Schwarz Methods
The goal of the present manuscript is to show that this class of preconditioners developed by researchers with various backgrounds are based on a common mathematical principle, and they can all be formulated in the context of domain decomposition methods called optimized Schwarz methods.
Finite Element Solution of the Helmholtz Equation with High Wave Number Part II: The h - p Version of the FEM
In this paper, which is part II in a series of two, the investigation of the Galerkin finite element solution to the Helmholtz equation is continued. While part I contained results on the $h$ version
Why it is Difficult to Solve Helmholtz Problems with Classical Iterative Methods
The purpose of this review paper is to explain why classical iterative methods fail to be effective for Helmholtz problems, and to show different avenues that have been taken to address this difficulty.
Double sweep preconditioner for optimized Schwarz methods applied to the Helmholtz problem
Is the Helmholtz Equation Really Sign-Indefinite?
New sign-definite formulations of the Helmholtz equation posed in either the interior of a star-shaped domain with impedance boundary conditions or the exterior of aStar-shape domain, with implications for both the analysis and the practical implementation of finite element methods are introduced.
Rational square-root approximations for parabolic equation algorithms
In this article, stable Pade approximations to the function 1+z are derived by choosing a branch cut in the negative half-plane. The Pade coefficients are complex and may be derived analytically to
