Randomized sampling for basis functions construction in generalized finite element methods
Repository Usage Stats
In the context of generalized finite element methods for elliptic equations with rough coefficients $a(x)$, efficiency and accuracy of the numerical method depend critically on the use of appropriate basis functions. This work explores several random sampling strategies for construction of basis functions, and proposes a quantitative criterion to analyze and compare these sampling strategies. Numerical evidence shows that the optimal basis functions can be well approximated by a random projection of generalized eigenvalue problem onto subspace of $a$-harmonic functions.
