4:00 PM-6:00 PM
Room: Atlanta 2
This minisymposium concerns the development of scalable sparse solvers, including direct methods (Gaussian elimination and its variants) and iterative methods (conjugate gradients and domain decomposition). The speakers will discuss a hybrid solver using incomplete Cholesky preconditioners; a grid-based object oriented framework for developing scalable solvers; and scalable alternatives to traditional approaches for partial pivoting and triangular solves.
