Two preconditioners based on the multi-level splitting of finite element spaces
The hierarchical basis preconditioner and the recent preconditioner of Bramble, Pasciak and Xu are derived and analyzed within a joint framework. This discussion elucidates the close relationship between both methods. Special care is devoted to highly nonuniform meshes; exclusively local properties like the shape regularity of the finite elements are utilized.
