In this paper we present an efficient, accurate and parallelizable direct method for the solution of the (indefinite) linear algebraic systems that arise in the solution of fourth order partial differential equations (PDEs) using mixed finite element approximations. The method is intended particularly for use when multiple righthand sides occur, and when high accuracy is required in these solutions. The algorithm is described in some detail and its performance is illustrated through the numerical solution of a biharmonic eigenvalue problem where the smallest eigenpair is approximated using inverse iteration after discretization via the CiarletRaviart mixed finite element method.

This paper is concerned with the accurate numerical approximation of the spectral properties of the biharmonic operator on various domains in two dimensions. A number of analytic results concerning the eigenfunctions of this operator are summarized and their implications for numerical approximation are discussed. In particular, the asymptotic behaviour of the first eigenfunction is studied since it is known that this has an unbounded number of oscillations when approaching certain types of corner on domain boundaries. Recent computational results of Bjørstad and Tjøstheim [4], using a highly accurate spectral LegendreGalerkin method, have demonstrated that a number of these sign changes may be accurately computed on a square domain provided sufficient care is taken with the numerical method. We demonstrate that similar accuracy is also achieved using an unstructured finite element solver which may be applied to problems on domains with arbitrary geometries. A number of results obtained from this mixed finite element approach are then presented for a variety of domains. These include a family of circular sector regions, for which the oscillatory behaviour is studied as a function of the internal angle, and another family of (symmetric and nonconvex) domains, for which the parity of the least eigenfunction is investigated. The paper not only verifies existing asymptotic theory, but also allows us to make a new conjecture concerning the eigenfunctions of the biharmonic operator. 1
