An efficient direct solver for a class of mixed finite element problems

Brown, Brian Malcolm, Jimack, P. K. and Mihajlović, M D. 2001. An efficient direct solver for a class of mixed finite element problems. Applied Numerical Mathematics 38 (1-2) , pp. 1-20. 10.1016/S0168-9274(00)00048-9

In this paper we present an efficient, accurate and parallelizable direct method for the solution of the (indefinite) linear algebraic systems that arise in the solution of fourth-order partial differential equations (PDEs) using mixed finite element approximations. The method is intended particularly for use when multiple right-hand sides occur, and when high accuracy is required in these solutions. The algorithm is described in some detail and its performance is illustrated through the numerical solution of a biharmonic eigenvalue problem where the smallest eigenpair is approximated using inverse iteration after discretization via the Ciarlet–Raviart mixed finite element method.
