A robust multigrid method for the time-dependent Stokes problem
Sprache des Titels:
We propose a coupled multigrid method for generalized Stokes flow problems. Such problems occur as subproblems in implicit time-stepping approaches for time-dependent Stokes problems. The discretized Stokes system is a large-scale linear system whose condition number depends on the grid size of the spatial discretization and of the length of the time-step. Recently, for this problem a coupled multigrid method has been proposed, where in each smoothing step a Poisson problem has to be solved (approximately) for the pressure field. In the present paper, we propose a coupled multigrid method where the solution of such subproblems is not needed. We prove that the proposed method shows robust convergence behavior in the grid size of the spatial discretization and of the length of the time-step.
