The development of iterative methods for solving linear algebraic equations has brought the question of when the employment of these methods is more advantageous than the use of the direct ones. In the paper, a comparison of the direct and iterative methods is attempted. The methods are applied to solving a certain class of boundary-value problems for elliptic partial differential equations which are used for the numerical modeling of electromagnetic fields in geophysics. The numerical experiments...

A Legendre spectral collocation method is presented for the solution of the biharmonic Dirichlet problem on a square. The solution and its Laplacian are approximated using the set of basis functions suggested by Shen, which are linear combinations of Legendre polynomials. A Schur complement approach is used to reduce the resulting linear system to one involving the approximation of the Laplacian of the solution on the two vertical sides of the square. The Schur complement system is solved by a...

The author studies the behaviour of a multi-level method that combines the Jacobi iterations and the correction by aggragation of unknowns. Our considerations are restricted to a simple one-dimensional example, which allows us to employ the technique of the Fourier analysis. Despite of this restriction we are able to demonstrate differences between the behaviour of the algorithm considered and of multigrid methods employing interpolation instead of aggregation.

In this paper, we develop a multiscale mortar multipoint flux mixed finite element method for second order elliptic problems. The equations in the coarse elements (or subdomains) are discretized on a fine grid scale by a multipoint flux mixed finite element method that reduces to cell-centered finite differences on irregular grids. The subdomain grids do not have to match across the interfaces. Continuity of flux between coarse elements is imposed via a mortar finite element space on a coarse grid...

In this paper, we present extensive numerical tests showing the performance and robustness of a Balancing Neumann-Neumann method for the solution of algebraic linear systems arising from hp finite element approximations of scalar elliptic problems on geometrically refined boundary layer meshes in three dimensions. The numerical results are in good agreement with the theoretical bound for the condition number of the preconditioned operator derived in [Toselli and Vasseur, IMA J. Numer. Anal.24 (2004)...

In this paper, we consider mortar-type Crouzeix-Raviart element discretizations for second order elliptic problems with discontinuous coefficients. A preconditioner for the FETI-DP method is proposed. We prove that the condition number of the preconditioned operator is bounded by ${(1+log(H/h))}^{2}$, where $H$ and $h$ are mesh sizes. Finally, numerical tests are presented to verify the theoretical results.
