In this paper, we present and analyze a FETI-DP solver with deluxe scaling for a Nitsche-type discretization [Comput. Methods Appl. Math. 3 (2003), 76–85], [SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 49 (2011), 1761–1787] based on a discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for elliptic two-dimensional problems with discontinuous coefficients and non-matching meshes only across subdomains. We establish a condition number estimate for the preconditioned linear system which is scalable with respect to the number of subdomains, is quasi-optimal polylogarithmic with respect to subdomain mesh size, and is independent of coefficient discontinuities and ratio of mesh sizes across subdomain interfaces. Numerical experiments support the theory and show that the deluxe scaling improves significantly the performance over classical scaling.
