  15. Range Decomposition: A Low Communication Algorithm for Solving PDEs on Massively Parallel Machines

    07 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Tom Manteuffel

    The Range Decomposition (RD) algorithm uses nested iteration and adaptive mesh refinement locally before performing a global communication step. Only several such steps are observed to be necessary before reaching a solution within a small multiple of discretization error. The target application...
