Why Multigrid Methods Are So Efficient
November/December 2006 (vol. 8 no. 6)
pp. 12-22
Irad Yavneh, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology
Originally introduced as a way to numerically solve elliptic boundary-value problems, multigrid methods, and their various multiscale descendants, have since been developed and applied to various problems in many disciplines. This introductory article provides the basic concepts and methods of analysis and outlines some of the difficulties of developing efficient multigrid algorithms.
Index Terms:
multigrid methods, numerical solution of partial differntial equations
