Multiphysics, multiscale models present significant challenges in terms of computing accurate solutions and for estimating the error in information computed from numerical solutions. In this chapter, we discuss error estimation for a widely used numerical approach for multiphysics, multiscale problems called multiscale operator decomposition. In this approach, a multiphysics model is decomposed into components involving simpler physics over a relatively limited range of scales, and the solution is sought through an iterative procedure involving numerical solutions of the individual components. After describing the ingredients of adjoint-based a posteriori analysis, we describe the extension to multiscale operator decomposition solution methods. While the particulars of the analysis vary considerably with the problem, there are several key ideas underlying a general approach to treat operator decomposition multiscale methods.

Keywords:   adjoint, multiphysics, multiscale operator decomposition, multi-discretization, operator splitting, stability
