Abstract

We consider the numerical solution of elliptic boundary-value problems on uncertain two-dimensional domains via the fictitious domain method. This leads to variational problems of saddle point form. Working under the standard assumption that the domain can be described by a finite number of independent random variables, discretization is achieved by a stochastic collocation mixed finite element method. We focus on the efficient iterative solution of the resulting sequence of indefinite linear systems and introduce a novel and efficient preconditioner for use with the minimal residual method. The challenging task is to construct a matrix that provides a robust approximation to a discrete representation of a trace space norm on a parameterized boundary.
