Parallel algorithm for spatially one-and two-dimensional initial-boundary-value problem for a parabolic equation

Pavol Purcz


A generalization of the spatially one-dimensional parallel pipe-line algorithm for solution of the initial-boundary-value problem using explicit difference method to the two-dimensional case is presented. The suggested algorithm has been verified by implementation on a workstation-cluster running under PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine). Theoretical estimates of the speed-up are presented.
