Many applications in computational science and engineering concern composite materials, which are characterized by large discontinuities in the material properties. Such applications require fine-scale finite-element meshes, which lead to large linear systems that are challenging to solve with current direct and iterative solutions algorithms....

Large discontinuities in material properties, such as those encountered in composite materials, lead to ill-conditioned systems of linear equations. These discontinuities give rise to small eigenvalues that may negatively affect the convergence of iterative solution methods such as the preconditioned conjugate gradient method. This paper...
