Multigrid algorithm with conditional coarsening for the non-aligned sonic flow

Boris Diskin


A multigrid approach using conditional coarsening in constructing solvers for non-elliptic equations on a rectangular grid is presented. Such an approach permits the achievement of a full multigrid efficiency even in the case where the equation characteristics do not align with the grid. The 2D sonic-flow equation linearized over a constant velocity field has been chosen as the model problem. An efficient $FMG$ solver for the problem is demonstrated.
