Abstract

In this paper, we study robust two-level domain decomposition preconditioners for highly anisotropic multiscale problems. We present a construction of coarse spaces that emploies initial multiscale basis functions and discuss techniques to achieve smaller dimensional coarse spaces without sacrificing the robustness of the preconditioner. We also present numerical results and consider possible extensions of these approaches where the dimension of the coarse space can be reduced further.
