A Domain Decomposition Method Based on Natural BEM and Mixed FEM for Stationary Stokes Equations on Unbounded Domains

In this paper, a new domain decomposition method is suggested for the stationary Stokes equations on unbounded domain and its convergence is proved. We draw an artificial boundary to make the domain into two parts: one is bounded, in which we use the mixed finite element method; the other is unbounded, in which we apply the natural boundary reduction. Then we change the sub-problem on the unbounded domain onto a one in a bounded domain and we use the Dirichlet to Neumann(DtN) alternating algorithm to solve the resulting mixed system. The theoretical results as well as the numerical examples show that this method is very effective especially for problems over unbounded domains.
