Using multigrid solvers in the adaptive finite element method yields a powerful tool for solving large-scale partial differential equations that exhibit localized features such as singularities or shocks. In addition to describing the basic method and related theory, this article numerically demonstrates the method's performance and utility on 2D and 3D problems.
