On the convergence of a dual-primal substructuring method. (English) Zbl 1003.65126

The authors are concerned with the derivation of polylogarithmic condition number estimates for dual-primal FETI type methods applied to 2nd and 4th order elliptic selfadjoint boundary value problems. It is shown that the condition number of the FETI-DP method with the Dirichlet preconditioner grows like \( O(1+\text{log}(\frac{H}{h}))^{2} \). The result and its proof improve on that given in a previous paper of the authors [Numer. Math. 73, No. 4, 473-487 (1996; Zbl 0880.65087)].
