Multigrid Methods for the Stokes System
November/December 2006 (vol. 8 no. 6)
pp. 34-43

The choice of multigrid method depends strongly on the type of discretization used and the problem formulation employed. This article gives an overview of multigrid methods for the Stokes equations, focusing on the saddle-point problem and on stable discretizations for staggered and vertex-centered grids.
Index Terms:
Multigrid, coupled relaxation, decoupled distributive relaxation, Stokes equations, staggered grid, vertex-centered grid, system transformation
