We extend the construction and analysis of the non-overlapping Schwarz preconditioners proposed in \cite{AntoniettiAyuso07,AntoniettiAyuso06} to the (non-consistent) super penalty discontinuous Galerkin methods introduced in \cite{BabuskaZlamal73} and \cite{BrezziManziniMariniPietraRusso00}. We show that the resulting preconditioners are scalable, and we provide the convergence estimates. We also present numerical experiments confirming the sharpness of the theoretical results.
