Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Local multi-trace formulations are a way to express transmission problems. They are based on integral formulations of the solution on each subdomain, and between the subdomains both the known jumps in the traces and the fluxes of the transmission problem are imposed, and thus the method contains multiple traces in its formulation. We show in this paper that it is possible to derive a closed form inverse for local multi-trace operators for an elliptic model problem.
