In this paper, we introduce a new class of frequency-filtering IBLU decompositions that use continued-fraction approximation for the diagonal blocks. This technique allows us to construct efficient frequencyfiltering preconditioners for discretizations of elliptic partial differential equations on domains with non-trivial geometries. We prove theoretically for a class of model problems that the application of the proposed preconditioners leads to a convergence rate of up to 1O(h1/4) of the CG iteration.
