### Abstract

ABSTRACT. We develop and analyze a class of overlapping domain decomposition (DD) preconditioners for linear-quadratic elliptic optimal control problems. Our preconditioners utilize the structure of the optimal control problems. Their execution requires the parallel solution of subdomain linear-quadratic elliptic optimal control problems, which are essentially smaller subdomain copies of the original problem. This work extends to optimal control problems the application and analysis of overlapping DD preconditioners, which have been used successfully for the solution of single PDEs. We prove that for a class of problems the performance of the two-level versions of our preconditioners is independent of the mesh size and of the subdomain size. 1.
