Relaxation Methods and Applications

  • Roland Glowinski
Part of the Springer Series in Computational Physics book series (SCIENTCOMP)


The key idea of relaxation methods is to reduce, using some iterative process, the solution of some problems posed in a product space V = Π i = 1 N V i (minimization of functionals, solution of systems of equations and/or inequalities, etc.) to the solution of a sequence of subproblems of the same kind, but simpler, since they are posed in the V i .
