Abstract: We consider iterative methods for the solution of linear systems
of equations arising from mixed finite element discretization of
the Reissner-Mindlin plate model. We show how to construct
symmetric positive definite block diagonal preconditioners for
these indefinite systems such that the resulting systems have
spectral condition numbers independent of both the mesh size h and
the plate thickness t.
