  • This paper is concerned with the construction and analysis of multilevel Schwarz preconditioners for partition of unity methods applied to elliptic problems. We show under which conditions on a given multilevel partition of unity hierarchy (MPUM) one even obtains uniformly bounded condition numbers and how to realize such requirements. The main anlytical tools are certain norm equivalences based on two-level splits providing frames that are stable under taking subsets.
