Talk on Parallel-in-Time Integration with PFASST by Robert Speck

Dr. Robert Speck, Forschungszentrum Juelich talks on 30 Jan 2017, 16:15–17:45 in S2|17-103 on Parallel-in-Time Integration with PFASST: For time-dependent partial differential equations, parallel-in-time integration using the “parallel full approximation scheme in space and time” (PFASST) is a promising way to accelerate existing space-parallel approaches beyond their scaling limits. Inspired by the classical Parareal method and non-linear multigrid ideas, PFASST allows to integrate … Continue reading →

Compumag 2009, Florianópolis

Main Hall

Compumag 2009 Plenary

I attended the Compumag 2009 in Florianópolis supported by a travel grant from the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). At the conference I showed a nice application of my latest research on co-simulation (together with Andreas Bartel and Herbert De Gersem). The theory is based on the work of Arnold/Günther: “Preconditioned dynamic iteration for coupled differential-algebraic systems” published in BIT Numerical Mathematics.

The given application is a multirate framework for the efficient simulation of field/circuit coupled problems. Within this framework, a guarantee for convergence and stability was given by PDAE analysis. It was shown that different time step sizes in different parts of the model can be automatically chosen according to the problem’s dynamics. Finally a finite element model of a transformer coupled to a circuit was given to illustrate the efficiency of the multirate method.

The talk was awarded with a COMPUMAG best paper commendation.
