Results are printed after each fine grid relaxation. Scheme (1,1) uses one relaxation on each level. Scheme (2,1) uses two relaxation sweeps before injection and one sweep before interpolation. 1. Note that r = 0 on the coarsest level because it contains only one interior point, making relaxation a direct solver. the method converges to the discrete solution u. These results can be used for comparison when we turn to FMV approximations. 3). Both schemes use red-black Gauss-Seidel relaxation. The scheme denoted by (1,1) performs one relaxation sweep on each level.
This means that one FMV cycle costs roughly the same as three or four fine grid relaxation sweeps. Of course, the question is how well the MV and FMV cycling schemes work. It is often said that multigrid processes converge at a rate independent of h. The reasoning is that the convergence factor for most relaxation schemes is independent of h for the oscillatory modes. Through the use of coarse grids, multigrid methods use relaxation essentially as a means of attenuating the oscillatory modes. Therefore, the overall convergence factor for a good multigrid scheme is usually close to the convergence factor of relaxation restricted to the oscillatory modes.
Step 2: Perform uh <^MVh(uh,fh) v0 times. and INTRODUCTION 23 For each of the cycling schemes just introduced, there are many issues and alternatives including the number of different grids that should be used, the number of cycles that should be made through those grids, and the number of iterations that should be made on each level. These are some of the more immediate issues that arise, but there are many more, some of which will be considered in the remaining sections and chapters.
