Parallel Adaptive Multilevel Methods With Full Domain Partions



William F. Mitchell


aptive multilevel methods are methods for solving partial differential equations that combine adaptive grid refinement with multigrid solution techniques. These methods have been shown to be very effective on sequential computers. Recently, a technique for parallelizing these methods for cluster computers has been developed. This paper presents an overview of a particular adaptive multilevel method and the parallelization of that method via the full domain partition.
