Domain decomposition methods are a modern numerical tool to handle partial differential equations with jumping coefficients, and to couple different discretization methods such as finite and boundary element methods [43]. Moreover, domain decomposition methods allow the derivation and parallelization of efficient solution strategies [95] in a natural setting. For a more detailed study of domain decomposition methods we refer, for example, to [18, 68, 114, 139, 149].
