AbstractIn this paper we analyze the convergence properties of twolevel and Wcycle multigrid solvers for the numerical solution of the linear system of equations arising from hpversion symmetric interior penalty discontinuous Galerkin discretizations of secondorder elliptic partial differential equations on polygonal/polyhedral meshes. We prove that the twolevel method converges uniformly with respect to the granularity of the grid and the polynomial approximation degree p, provided that the number of smoothing steps, which depends on p, is chosen sufficiently large. An analogous result is obtained for the Wcycle multigrid algorithm, which is proved to be uniformly convergent with respect to the mesh size, the polynomial approximation degree, and the number of levels, provided the latter remains bounded and the number of smoothing steps is chosen sufficiently large. Numerical experiments are presented which underpin the theoretical predictions; moreover, the proposed multilevel solvers are shown to be convergent in practice, even when some of the theoretical assumptions are not fully satisfied.
