In this paper, we design some efficient domain decomposition preconditioners for the discontinuous Petrov–Galerkin (DPG) method. Due to the special properties of the DPG method, the boundary condition becomes crucial in both of its application and analysis. We mainly focus on one of the boundary conditions: the Robin boundary condition, which actually appears in some useful model problems like the Helmholtz equation. We first design a two-level additive Schwarz preconditioner for the Poisson equation with a Robin boundary condition and give a rigorous condition number estimate for the preconditioned algebraic system. Moreover we also construct an additive Schwarz preconditioner for solving the Helmholtz equation. Numerical results show that the condition number of the preconditioned system is independent of wavenumber ω and mesh size h.
