Schwarz Waveform Relaxation for a Class of Non-dissipative Problems

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering book series (LNCSE, volume 104)


In this paper, we introduce the results for the Schwarz waveform relaxation (SWR) algorithm applied to a class of non-dissipative reaction diffusion equations. Both the Dirichlet and Robin transmission conditions (TCs) are considered. For the Dirichlet TC, we consider the algorithm for the nonlinear problem \(\partial _{t}u =\mu \partial _{xx}u + f(u)\), in the case of many subdomains.
