Nested Iteration and First-Order System Least Squares for Incompressible, Resistive Magnetohydrodynamics
This paper develops a nested iteration algorithm to solve time-dependent nonlinear systems of partial differential equations. For each time step, Newton’s method is used to form approximate solutions from a sequence of nested spaces, where the resolution of the approximations increases as the algorithm progresses. Nested iteration results in most of the iterations being performed on coarser grids, where minimal work is needed to reduce error to the level of discretization error. The approximate solution on a given coarse grid is interpolated to a refined grid and used as an initial guess for the problem posed there. The approximation is then already close enough to the solution on the current grid that a minimal amount of work is needed to solve the refined problem, due to the rapid convergence of Newton’s method near a solution. The paper develops an algorithm that attempts to optimize accuracy-percomputational-cost on each grid, so that essentially no unnecessary work is done ...
