The numerical solution of strongly coupled systems of partial differential equations (PDE systems) is commonplace in many simulation codes. Typically, large sparse matrix equations arise in the corresponding simulation runs. A serious bottleneck in performing realistic, largescale simulations is the speed by which these matrix equations can be solved. If they exceed a certain size, they can no longer be solved efficiently with standard numerical solvers, simply because these solvers are not… Expand
