On the effect of boundary conditions on the scalability of Schwarz methods

Gabriele Ciaramella, Luca Mechelli

In contrast with classical Schwarz theory, recent results have shown that for special domain geometries, one-level Schwarz methods can be scalable. This property has been proved for the Laplace equation and external Dirichlet boundary conditions. Much less is known if mixed boundary conditions are considered. This short manuscript focuses on the convergence and scalability analysis of one-level parallel Schwarz method and optimized Schwarz method for several different external configurations of boundary conditions, i.e., mixed Dirichlet, Neumann and Robin conditions.
