Title: Effective implementation of the weak Galerkin finite element methods for the biharmonic equation

The weak Galerkin (WG) methods have been introduced in [11, 12, 17] for solving the biharmonic equation. The purpose of this paper is to develop an algorithm to implement the WG methods effectively. This can be achieved by eliminating local unknowns to obtain a global system with significant reduction of size. In fact this reduced global system is equivalent to the Schur complements of the WG methods. The unknowns of the Schur complement of the WG method are those defined on the element boundaries. The equivalence of theWG method and its Schur complement is established. The numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of this new implementation technique.
