Domain Decomposition Methods for Fluids

Marco Discacciati, Loughborough University

Paola Gervasio, University of Brescia

Domain decomposition methods provide a computational framework to effectively solve complex problems by splitting them into families of simpler sub-problems and by designing algorithms suited for parallel computing. Complexity can be due, e.g., to the large number of unknowns of the discrete problem, to the underlying mathematical model (non-linear, multi-physics), to discretization techniques, to geometrical features of the computational domain.
In this minisymposium, we discuss recent advances in domain decomposition techniques for problems arising in fluid mechanics.
