Convergence of \(V\)-cycle and \(F\)-cycle multigrid methods for the biharmonic problem using the Morley element. (English) Zbl 1065.65139

Summary: Multigrid \(V\)-cycle and \(F\)-cycle algorithms for the bibarmonic problem using the Morley element are studied in this paper. We show that the contraction numbers can be uniformly improved by increasing the number of smoothing steps.
