A theory of decomposition has already been developed by Sobolev, Babuska and Morgenstern and P.L. Lions. The idea is to decompose the whole structure into subregions. The standard methods involve substructuring techniques, for example, in finite element or boundary element methods. Here we introduce different approaches for the partial differential equation in each substructure. The basic idea of this paper has already been handled by the author in earlier papers [06–07].
