An algebraic multigrid method for Q2Q1 mixed discretizations of the NavierStokes equations
Algebraic multigrid (AMG) preconditioners are considered for discretized systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) where unknowns associated with different physical quantities are not necessarily colocated at mesh points. Speci cally, we investigate a Q _{2}Q _{1} mixed finite element discretization of the incompressible NavierStokes equations where the number of velocity nodes is much greater than the number of pressure nodes. Consequently, some velocity degreesoffreedom (dofs) are defined at spatial locations where there are no corresponding pressure dofs. Thus, AMG approaches lever aging this colocated structure are not applicable. This paper instead proposes an automatic AMG coarsening that mimics certain pressure/velocitymore » 
Iterative leastsquares solvers for the NavierStokes equations
In the recent years finite element methods of leastsquares type have attracted considerable attention from both mathematicians and engineers. This interest has been motivated, to a large extent, by several valuable analytic and computational properties of leastsquares variational principles. In particular, finite element methods based on such principles circumvent LadyzhenskayaBabuskaBrezzi condition and lead to symmetric and positive definite algebraic systems. Thus, it is not surprising that numerical solution of fluid flow problems has been among the most promising and successful applications of leastsquares methods. In this context leastsquares methods offer significant theoretical and practical advantages in the algorithmic design, whichmore » 
A spectral mimetic leastsquares method for the Stokes equations with noslip boundary condition
Formulation of locally conservative leastsquares finite element methods (LSFEMs) for the Stokes equations with the noslip boundary condition has been a long standing problem. Existing LSFEMs that yield exactly divergence free velocities require nonstandard boundary conditions (Bochev and Gunzburger, 2009 [3]), while methods that admit the noslip condition satisfy the incompressibility equation only approximately (Bochev and Gunzburger, 2009 [4, Chapter 7]). Here we address this problem by proving a new nonstandard stability bound for the velocity–vorticity–pressure Stokes system augmented with a noslip boundary condition. This bound gives rise to a normequivalent leastsquares functional in which the velocity can be approximatedmore »Cited by 1
