A Note on Terminology in Multigrid Methods

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We compare terminology used in the literature on multigrid methods for compressible computational fluid dynamics to that used in linear multigrid theory. Several popular iterative and direct smoothers are presented side-by-side using the same terminology. We argue for greater analysis of these methods in order to place them into a more rigorous framework and to identify the most promising candidates for future development.
