Coarse space correction is essential to achieve algorithmic scalability in domain decomposition methods. Our goal here is to build a robust coarse space for Schwarz– type preconditioners for elliptic problems with highly heterogeneous coefficients when the discontinuities are not just across but also along subdomain interfaces, where classical results break down [3, 6, 9, 15].
