Abstract

We present a method for solving nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations, s∂p/∂t-▽·(K▽p) = f(x,p), using a mixed finite-element method. To linearize the mixed-method equations, we use a two-grid scheme that relegates all of the Newton-like iterations to grids much coarser than the original one, with no loss in order of accuracy. The use of a multigrid-based solver for the indefinite linear systems that arise at each iteration, as well as for the similar system that arises on the fine grid, allows for even greater efficiency.
