Parallel algebraic multilevel Schwarz preconditioners for a class of elliptic PDE systems

We present algebraic multilevel preconditioners for linear systems arising from the discretization of systems of coupled elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs). These preconditioners are based on modifications of Schwarz methods and of the smoothed aggregation technique, where the coarsening strategy and the restriction and prolongation operators are defined using a point-based approach with a primary … Read more
