### Solving a linear system with block-banded matrix

It is required to solve a linear system $Ax=b$, where the matrix $A$ is symmetric, all the variables and coefficients are real. The structure of $A$ is \begin{equation} A = \begin{pmatrix} A_{11} &...

### How can the choice of coarsening factor affect Multigrid's convergence?

The linear system $Ax=b$ is coming from the discretization of an elliptic PDE. Multigrid method is used in order to solve it. Suppose $c_0$ is the coarsening factor on level 0 and $c_m$ the coarsening ...

### Why does the initial guess for linear system usually choose by zero vector?

For solving linear system $$Ax=b,$$ using iterative mehods, we often use the terminate criterion as follows: $$\frac{\|r_k\|}{\|r_0\|}=\frac{\|b-Ax_k\|}{\|b-Ax_0\|}<eps.$$where $x_0$ is the ...

### Analytic vs discrete understanding of PDE

The PDE I am working with: $$\partial_tu = \nabla \cdot (a(x)\nabla u)-\beta(x)u\\ \partial_nu=0, x \in \Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^2\\ \beta(x)>0$$ Integrate the PDE: \int_\Omega \partial_t u=\...

### Solving large system of equations, is linear programming best option? [closed]

I have a problem where I am trying to solve many systems of equations, that have very few variables per equation, but a lot of equations. For example potentially 10 variables max in a single equation,...
