Multilevel preconditioning operators on locally modified grids

Michael Jung, TU Dresden, Institut für Wissenschaftliches Rechnen

Systems of grid equations that approximate elliptic boundary value problems on locally modified grids are considered. The triangulation which approximates the boundary with second order of accuracy is generated from an initial uniform triangulation by shifting nodes near the boundary according to special rules. This ”locally modified” grid possesses several significant features: this triangulation has a regular structure, the generation of the triangulation is fast, this construction allows to use multilevel preconditioning (BPX-like) methods. The proposed iterative methods for solving elliptic boundary value problems approximately are based on two approaches: The fictitious space method, i.e. the reduction of the original problem to a problem in an auxiliary (fictitious) space, and the multilevel decomposition method, i.e. the construction of preconditioners by decomposing functions on hierarchical grids. The convergence rate of the corresponding iterative process with the preconditioner obtained is independent of the mesh size.

This talk is based on a joint work with A. M. Matsokin, S. V. Nepomnyaschikh, and Yu. A. Tkachov, Institute of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Geophysics, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia.
