Abstract: "New coarse grid operators are developed for elliptic problems with highly oscillatory coefficients. The new coarse grid operators are constructed directly based on the homogenized differential operators or hierarchically computed from the finest grid. A detailed description of this construction is provided. Numerical calculations for a two dimensional elliptic model problem show that the homogenized form of the equations is very useful in the design of coarse grid operators for the multigrid method. A more realistic problem of heat conduction in a composite structure is also considered."
