A multiscale method with patch for the solution of stochastic partial differential equations with localized uncertainties

Abstract : We here propose a multiscale numerical method for the solution of stochastic partial di erential equations with localized uncertainties. It is based on a multiscale domain decomposition method that exploits the localized side of uncertainties and incidentally improves the conditioning of the problem by operating a separation of scales. An efficient iterative algorithm is proposed that requires the solution of a sequence of simple global problems at a macro scale, involving a deterministic operator, and local problems at a micro scale for which we have the possibility to use ne approximation spaces. Global and local problems are solved using tensor approximation methods allowing the representation of high dimensional stochastic parametric solutions. Convergence properties of these tensor based methods, which are closely related to spectral decompositions, benefit from the separation of scales. Different types of uncertainties are considered at the micro level. They may be associated with some variability in the operator or source terms, or even with some geometrical variability. In the latter case, specific reformulations of local problems using fictitious domain methods are introduced.
