In this paper we show that standard preconditioners for parabolic PDEs discretized by implicit Euler or Crank–Nicolson schemes can be reused for higher–order fully implicit Runge–Kutta time discretization schemes. We prove that the suggested block diagonal preconditioners are order–optimal for A–stable and irreducible Runge–Kutta schemes with invertible(More)
ratory mostly focuses on computational applications in life sciences. Usually, this involves fairly typical partial differential equations such as the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, elasticity equations, and parabolic and elliptic PDEs, but these PDEs are typically coupled either with each other or with ordinary differential equations (ODEs).(More)
The PDE part of the bidomain equations is discretized in time with fully implicit Runge–Kutta methods, and the resulting block systems are preconditioned with a block diagonal preconditioner. By studying the time stepping operator in the proper Sobolev spaces we show that the preconditioned systems have bounded condition numbers given that the Runge–Kutta(More)
Recently, the authors presented different block preconditioners for implicit Runge-Kutta discretization of the heat equation. The preconditioners were block Jacobi and block Gauss-Seidel preconditoners where the blocks reused existing preconditioners for the implicit Euler discretization of the same equation. In this paper we will introduce similar block(More)
