A FETI-DP method for Crouzeix-Raviart finite element discretizations. (English) Zbl 1284.65182

Summary: This paper is concerned with the construction and analysis of a parallel preconditioner for a FETI-DP system of equations arising from the nonconforming Crouzeix-Raviart finite element discretization of a model elliptic problem of second order with discontinuous coefficients. We show that the condition number of the preconditioned problem is independent of the coefficient jumps, and grows only as \((1 + \log(H/h))^2\), where \(H\) and \(h\) are mesh parameters, in other words the preconditioner is quasi optimal.
