A Scalable Algorithm for Inverse Medium Problems with Multiple Sources
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Keith Kelly
We consider the problem of acoustic scattering as described by the freespace, timeharmonic scalar wave equation given by (0.1) along with radiation boundary conditions. Here, is a point in , is the source term, and is the wavenumber. Our formulation is based on potential theory....

Monolithic Multigrid Methods for Coupled MultiPhysics Problems
04 Feb 2016   Contributor(s):: Scott Maclachlan
While blockdiagonal and approximate blockfactorization preconditioners are often considered for coupled problems, monolithic approaches can offer improved performance, particularly when the coupling between equations is strong. In this talk, we discuss the extension of BraessSarazin relaxation...

Optimal Order Multigrid Preconditioners for Linear Systems Arising in the Semismooth Newton Method Solution Process of a Class of ControlConstrained Problems
18 Aug 2015   Contributor(s):: Andrei Draganescu
In this work we present a new multigrid preconditioner for the linear systems arising in the semismooth Newton method solution process of certain controlconstrained, quadratic distributed optimal control problems. Using a piecewise constant discretization of the control space, each semismooth...
