    Abstract

    We study non-overlapping Schwarz Methods for solving second order time-harmonic 3D Maxwell equations in heterogeneous media. Choosing the interfaces between the subdomains to be aligned with the discontinuities in the coefficients, we show for a model problem that while the classical Schwarz method is not convergent, optimized transmission conditions dependent on the discontinuities of the coefficients lead to convergent methods. We prove asymptotically that the resulting methods converge in certain cases independently of the mesh parameter, and convergence can even become better as the coefficient jumps increase.
