Coarse grid correction is a key ingredient in order to have scalable domain decomposition methods. In this Note we construct the coarse grid space using the low frequency modes of the subdomain DtN (Dirichlet-Neumann) maps, and apply the obtained two-level preconditioner to the linear system arising from an overlapping domain decomposition. Our method is suitable for the parallel implementation and its efficiency is demonstrated by numerical examples on problems with high heterogeneities.
