Dear users of LRZ,


There are still places available for the online course


Iterative Solvers for Linear Systems, 08. – 10.09.2021


The registration deadline has been extended to 1 Sept 2021.


Prof. Andreas Meister taught this topic in the past annually at LRZ as part
of a one-week compact course “Iterative Linear Solvers and Parallelization”
and at many other locations within and outside Europe. This year we offer
the course as a stand-alone 3-day online course for the first time.


The focus of the 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 or GNU Octave) 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. The
course is organised by LRZ in cooperation with Uni. Kassel and HLRS.
