# Questions tagged [domain-decomposition]

A parallel algorithm design approach in which the data is divided into pieces and then computations are associated with the data. This contrasts to 'functional decomposition', in which tasks or computations are divided first, then data is associated to them.

### Load balancing/partitioning with unknown weights

For a grid-based numerical simulation, I am looking for a load balancing/partitioning algorithm that not only distributes my grid elements, but also determines (approximates) their respective weights. ...

### Is it possible to predict the null space of a structure from contributing elements null spaces?

I am trying to solve an almost incompressible problem with heterogeneous properties by domain decomposition. Solution with CG converges slowly or divergerces completely. My problem becomes ill-...

### Metis: how to use and tutorial recommendation

I am new to METIS and trying to use it in my fortran code. I read the manual online. But still, I am not sure about how to implement it my code. I tried the test cases in the graphs directory. For ...
I am dealing with following 2-dimensional problem in the unit square domain $S_2$ $$- \Delta u (x,y) = f \ \text{in} \ S_2, \hspace{1.5cm} u(x,y) = 0 \ \text{on} \ \partial S_2$$ where $f$ is ...
I have a partial differential equation of the form $$\frac{d}{dt}f(x,t) = \Theta(x) f(x,t) \qquad \Theta(x) \sim \left[\frac{d^2}{dx^2} + k^2(x)\right]$$ subject to $f(x,t=0) = f_0(x)$, and \$f(x=0,t)...
