Demanding applications incorporating "full physics" simulations require the solution of very large scale nonlinear systems. Systems of unprecedented size and difficulty are being successfully attacked with a broadening array of sophisticated numerical algorithms implemented on increasingly powerful computers. These algorithms may involve globalized inexact Newton methods, Krylov subspace methods, linear and nonlinear multigrid/multilevel techniques, domain decomposition, and other approaches. Often the greatest success is obtained with a combination of these. The speakers in this minisymposium will highlight recent advances in algorithms and problem treatment on very high performance computers.
