A symmetric and a nonsymmetric variant of the additive Schwarz preconditioner are proposed for the solution of a class of finite volume element discretization of the symmetric elliptic problem in two dimensions, with large jumps in the entries of the coefficient matrices across subdomains. It is shown that the convergence of the preconditioned generalized minimal residual iteration using the proposed preconditioners depends polylogarithmically, in other words weakly, on the mesh parameters, and that they are robust with respect to the jumps in the coefficients.
