Conservative domain decomposition schemes for solving two-dimensional heat equations

In this paper, by combining the operator splitting technique, a new mass-conserved domain decomposition method for two-dimensional heat equations is proposed. Along the each direction, the interface fluxes are first calculated from the explicit fluxes, then the sub-domain’s interior solutions are paralelly computed by the C–N implicit scheme. The scheme is stable under the condition \(r\le 2(\sqrt{6}-2)\) and the corresponding convergence order of the scheme are given in \(L^2\)-norm. Numerical results confirm the theoretical results.
