"Stable decompositions of hp-BEM spaces and an optimal Schwarz preconditioner for the hypersingular integral operator in 3D";
ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis,
We consider fractional Sobolev spaces H^(\theta)(\Gamma), \theta \in [0, 1] on a 2D surface Γ. We show that functions in H^(\theta(\Gamma) can be decomposed into contributions with local support in a stable way. Stability of the decomposition is inherited by piecewise polynomial subspaces. Applications include the analysis of additive Schwarz preconditioners for discretizations of the hypersingular integral operator by the p-version of the boundary element method with condition number bounds that are uniform in the polynomial degree p.
