### What is the principle behind the convergence of Krylov subspace methods for solving linear systems of equations?

As I understand it, there are two major categories of iterative methods for solving linear systems of equations: Stationary Methods (Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel, SOR, Multigrid) Krylov Subspace methods (...

### Strong coupling of a non-linear multiphysic problem: failure with Newton Raphson method

I am trying to solve a multiphysic problem using finite elements and a Newton Raphson solution scheme. I have two non-linear subsystems that are coupled bi-directionally. The first subsystem includes ...

### Oscillating convergence in my Resilient BackPropagation (RPROP) implementation

I have implemented in matlab a neural network that uses rprop's algorithm to update its weights. Strangely the error on the training set does not converge to a local minimum, but oscillates. Here is ...

### Finding rate of convergence by curve fitting in Matlab

I have some data: number of nodes $N$ and error in energy norm corresponing to it. I have seen in some references that the rate of convergence is reported by $$\| u-u_h\| _E=CN^{\alpha}$$ How can ...

### Converge rate analysis: issue with time convergence

I have written a code which solves the incompressible formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations. It uses high-order methods both for time and spatial derivatives. I have been conducting convergence ...
