AbstractWe discuss the preconditioning of systems coupling elliptic operators in Ω⊂Rd, d=2,3, with elliptic operators defined on hypersurfaces. These systems arise naturally when physical phenomena are affected by geometric boundary forces, such as the evolution of liquid drops subject to surface tension. The resulting operators are sums of interior and boundary terms weighted by parameters. We investigate the behavior of multigrid algorithms suited to this context and demonstrate numerical results which suggest uniform preconditioning bounds that are level and parameter independent.
