This paper describes an iterative solution technique for partial differential equations involving the grad(div) operator, based on a domain decomposition. Iterations are performed to solve the solution on the interface. We identify the transmission relationships through the interface. We relate the approach to a Steklov-Poincare operator, and we illustrate the performance of technique through some numerical experiments.AMS subject classifications: 65N55, 65F10
