A coarse-fine-mesh stabilization for an alternating Schwarz domain decomposition method
Journal article, 2019
Domain decomposition methods can be solved in various ways. In this paper, domain decomposition in strips is used. It is demonstrated that a special version of the Schwarz alternating iteration method coupled with coarse-fine-mesh stabilization leads to a very efficient solver, which is easy to implement and has a behavior nearly independent of mesh and problem parameters. The novelty of the method is the use of alternating iterations between odd- and even-numbered subdomains and the replacement of the commonly used coarse-mesh stabilization method with coarse-fine-mesh stabilization.
