### What is the state of the art in solving stiff initial value problems?

So there is a ton to say about this, and we will actually be putting a paper out that tries to summarize it a bit, but let me narrow it down to something that can be put into a quick StackOverflow ...

### Why are systems with clustered eigenvalues easy to solve?

A good explanation of this phenomena with many examples is given in Iterative Methods for Linear and Nonlinear Equations by Tim Kelley. The crux of it comes down to the fact that each step of a ...

### Why are systems with clustered eigenvalues easy to solve?

At the $k$th iteration, typical Krylov methods for solving $Ax=b$ (such as CG, MINRES, and GMRES) implicitly construct a $k$th order polynomial $Q(x)$ such that: $Q(0) = 1$. $|Q(\lambda_i)|$ is as ...

### Physics Simulation in C++

I think you are missing a very important and crucial step that lies exactly between the physics and simulation: the mathematical model. In order to model any physics, one has to formulate the ...

### Term for the typical "linear in the larger dimension, quadratic in the smaller" cost for linear algebra

The book "Introduction to Applied Linear Algebra" by Boyd and Vandenberghe has an appendix about complexity of basic operations in linear algebra and they call this case big-times-small-...

### The Formula of Explicit Runge-Kutta Fourteen order

The 14th order methods due to Feagin can be found in DifferentialEquations.jl. An example using them with 128-bit floating point arithmetic is as follows: ...

### Looking for Runge-Kutta 8th order in C/C++

summarizing some points: If it's a long-term integration of a non-dissapative model, a symplectic integrator is what you're looking for. Otherwise, since it's an equation of motion, Runge-Kutta ...

### Benchmarks for Gröbner bases and polynomial system solution

Always keep in mind that the results of any benchmark will depend, in addition to the problem's size, on the base field over which the polynomial ring is defined (rational numbers or integers modulo ...

### What good are hard-sphere event-driven molecular dynamics simulations in the face of chaos?

Yes, it is possible to show that the statistical behavior of the approximate system will reach that of the "exact" system. (This is true even though hard-sphere dynamics do not accurately describe ...

### Good references for dual-weighted residual (DWR) method for goal-oriented adaptive mesh refinement (AMR)

The canonical "first" reference for the method is a paper by Becker and Rannacher that was ultimately published as an article in the ENUMATH 97 proceedings, but is often cited as the ...

### Scientific computing code development hands on introduction

If you're interested in the process of developing scientific software for the simulation of continua based on the finite element method, you might be interested in the deal.II library (https://www....

### Mesh refinement in the Finite Element Method

You really don't want to implement this yourself -- you'll spend a year or two on things others have already done, and will have done far better than you can hope for. The difficulty is generally ...

### Continuous vs discontinuous space-time FEM

More concretely, it can be shown that discontinuous Galerkin (dG(r)) schemes lead to strongly A-stable time stepping schemes and continuous Galerkin (cG(r)) schemes are A-stable time stepping schemes, ...

### Fourth order IMEX Runge-Kutta method

I think the work of Kennedy and Carpenter (mentioned already by @GoHokies) is still the definitive study on this topic. The journal paper can be found here; for some reason Google Scholar only ...

### Resources for solving mixed left and right matrix equations

This is a Sylvester equation, although normally the matrices would all be square. Even for rectangular matrices, the Bartels-Stewart method applies (also A Hessenberg-Schur Method for the Problem \$AX+...
