A BDDC algorithm for second-order elliptic problems with hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin discretizations

Xuemin Tu and Bin Wang


A balancing domain decomposition by constraints (BDDC) algorithm is applied to the linear system arising from a hybridizable discontinuous Galerkin (HDG) discretization of the second-order elliptic problems. Edge/face constraints are enforced across the subdomain interface and the similar condition number bound is obtained as those for conforming finite element discretization. Numerical experiments demonstrate the convergence rate of the proposed algorithm.
