Analysis of preconditioners for saddle-point problems

Loghin, D. and Wathen, A. J. (2002) Analysis of preconditioners for saddle-point problems. Technical Report. Unspecified. (Submitted)



Mixed finite element formulations give rise to large, sparse, block linear systems of equations the solution of which is often sought via a preconditioned iterative technique. In this work we present a general analysis of block-preconditioners based on the stability conditions inherited from the formulation of the finite element method (the Babuska-Brezzi, or inf-sup conditions).
