Application of Multigrid Techniques to Magnetic and Electromagnetic Systems
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Benjamin Cowan
We discuss the use of multigrid techniques for several novel systems related to electromagnetics. One of these is the magnetostatic problem, in which systems can involve highly anisotropic and nonlinear materials. We describe the linear problems arising in several variations of this problem,...
