Eigenvalue Bounds for Double Saddle-Point Systems

20 January 2022

We use energy estimates to derive new bounds on the eigenvalues of a generic form of double saddle-point matrices, with and without regularization terms. Results related to inertia and algebraic multiplicity of eigenvalues are also presented. The analysis includes eigenvalue bounds for preconditioned matrices based on block-diagonal Schur complement-based preconditioners, and it is shown that in this case the eigenvalues are clustered within a few intervals bounded away from zero. The analytical observations are linked to a few multiphysics problems of interest. This is joint work with Susanne Bradley.
