In this contribution we present a survey of concepts in localized model order reduction methods for parameterized partial differential equations. The key concept of localized model order reduction is to construct local reduced spaces that have only support on part of the domain and compute a global approximation by a suitable coupling of the local spaces. In detail, we show how optimal local approximation spaces can be constructed and approximated by random sampling. An overview of possible conforming and non-conforming couplings of the local spaces is provided and corresponding localized a posteriori error estimates are derived. We introduce concepts of local basis enrichment, which includes a discussion of adaptivity. Implementational aspects of localized model reduction methods are addressed. Finally, we illustrate the presented concepts for multiscale, linear elasticity and fluid-flow problems, providing several numerical experiments. This work has been submitted as a chapter in P. Benner, S. Grivet-Talocia, A. Quarteroni, G. Rozza, W.H.A. Schilders, L.M. Sileira. Handbook on Model Order Reduction. Walter De Gruyter GmbH, Berlin, 2019+.
pyMOR is a free software library for model order reduction that includes both reduced basis and system-theoretic methods. All methods are implemented in terms of abstract vector and operator interfaces, which allows direct integration of pyMOR's algorithms with a wide array of external PDE solvers. In this contribution, we give a brief overview of the available methods and experimentally compare them for the parametric instationary thermal-block benchmark defined in [S. Rave and J. Saak, Thermal Block. MORwiki - Model Order Reduction Wiki, 2020. http://modelreduction.org/index.php/Thermal_Block].
This paper shows recent developments in pyMOR, in particular the addition of system‐theoretic methods. All methods are implemented using pyMOR's abstract interfaces, which allows the application to partial differential equation (PDE) models implemented with third‐party libraries. We demonstrate this by applying balanced truncation to a PDE model discretized in FEniCS.
