Title: A saddle point approach to the computation of harmonic maps
Author: Hu, Qiya; Tai, Xue Cheng; Winther, Ragnar
Copyright year: 2009
Abstract: In this paper we consider numerical approximations of a constraint minimization problem, where the object function is a quadratic Dirichlet functional for vector fields and the interior constraint is given by a convex function. The solutions of this problem are usually referred to as harmonic maps. The solution is characterized by a nonlinear saddle point problem, and the corresponding linearized problem is well-posed near strict local minima. The main contribution of the present paper is to establish a corresponding result for a proper finite element discretization in the case of two space dimensions. Iterative schemes of Newton type for the discrete nonlinear saddle point problems are investigated, and mesh independent preconditioners for the iterative methods are proposed.
