This chapter addresses some advanced topics whose development remains work in progress. The first topic concerns the efficient treatment of non-linear models where standard strategies can fail for high-dimensional problems. The second topic concerns the use of advective stabilization when the involved fields are approximated in a separated form. Finally, we introduce a discrete form of the PGD solver, the one that we consider in computer implementations, that is then extended for considering a separated representation constructor based on residual minimization. Residual minimization is particularly suitable for addressing non-symmetric differential operators, for which the standard procedure described in the previous chapters can be inefficient (slow convergence and non-optimal representations).
