Solving 3D block bidiagonal linear systems on vector computers. (English) Zbl 0679.65021
Different techniques are described for the vectorization of the solution of 3D-block bidiagonal systems. The proposed methods are directly applicable to ETA-10 family of supercomputers and can be adapted to other vector computers. Preconditioning techniques are discussed and examples are given showing the efficiency of the proposed methods.
