We propose and analyze several two-level non-overlapping Schwarz methods for a preconditioned weakly over-penalized symmetric interior penalty (WOPSIP) discretization of a second order boundary value problem. We show that the preconditioners are scalable and that the condition number of the resulting preconditioned linear systems of equations is independent of the penalty parameter and is of order Hh-1, where H and h represent the mesh sizes of the coarse and fine partitions, respectively. Numerical experiments that illustrate the performance of the proposed two-level Schwarz methods are also presented. © 2012 Institute of Mathematics, NAS of Belarus.
