Paprzycki, M. and I. Gladweil, Solving almost block diagonal systems on parallel computers, Parallel Computing 17 (1991) 133-153. Finite difference methods for nonlinear boundary value problems (BVP's) in ordinary differential equations involve solving systems of linear equations at an inner iteration. In the typical case of separated boundary conditions, these systems are almost block diagonal (ABD). A new 'tearing' algorithm for the parallel solution of those ABD's is presented here. It is an… CONTINUE READING
