The focus of this online course is on modern iterative solvers for large linear systems of equations. Thereby, beside classical schemes and fundamentals of multigrid techniques different modern Krylov subspace methods (CG, GMRES, BiCGSTAB ...) as well as highly efficient preconditioning techniques are presented in the context of real life applications. Hands-on sessions (MATLAB and GNU Octave respectively) will allow users to immediately test and understand the basic constructs of iterative solvers. This course provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. It is organised by LRZ in cooperation with Uni. Kassel and HLRS.
