comment Factorizing a saddle point operator
@ShuhaoCao: It is the divergence operator, but my current formulation is continuous, not discrete. For simplicity, I'm currently considering a 1D case where the divergence and gradient operators are equivalent. In the future, I'd like to consider higher dimensional cases where $u_1$ is, in fact, vector valued.

comment Factorizing a saddle point operator
@RobertLewis: LU is not favorable because the resulting discrete linear operator is large. I'm trying to avoid a large solve by splitting the continuous operator before discretizing the system.

comment Laplace equation with periodic boundary conditions
@Landscape: Indeed, this is what I suspected. But what of the form of the solutions? Are all solutions scalar shifts of each other if the periodic neumann condition is not imposed?

comment Name of a maximum bound
Thanks @copper.hat! I presume that we could also limit our search for a maximum to the unit ball $||x||=1$, correct?

comment Convexity of a function
@Star: I agree with GodricSeer. If you could provide some of the details (or an outline) of your proof, and where in the proof you need help, we will be able to help you better.

Have you tried using the definition of convexivity? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convex_function#Definition
