Elliptic Problem Solvers, II covers the proceedings of the Elliptic Problem Solvers Conference, held at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California from January 10 to 12, 1983. The book focuses on various aspects of the numerical solution of elliptic boundary value problems. The selection first offers information on building elliptic problem solvers with ELLPACK; presentation and evolution of the club module; and a fourth order accurate fast direct method for the Helmholtz equation. The text then examines the ITPACK project, CMMPAK, solving elliptic problems on an array processor system, and parallel architectures for iterative methods on adaptive, block structured grids. Topics include adaptive solution algorithm, data structure, elliptic problem solvers, input data, and vector ITPACK. The publication ponders on conjugate gradient preconditioners for vector and parallel processors; an algebra for systolic computation; and an incomplete-Cholesky factorization by a matrix partition algorithm. The book also tackles the numerical solution of a model equation near the onset of the Rayleigh-Benard instability; numerical methods for solving coupled semiconductor equations on a minicomputer; and analysis of nonlinear elliptic systems arising in reaction/diffusion modeling. The selection is highly recommended for researchers interested in elliptic problem solvers.If the errors are localized, and few triangles are refined, the user may decide to merge the new triangulation with the previous one.
