Abstract

The efficient parallel computation of time dependent problems, underlies the `bottleneck' of the serial approach in time. The usual method of lines leads to an iterative calculation in time, a sequential solution of the spatial problems for all time steps. A new method is developed which combines the new non-symmetric formulation and the traditional semidiscretization. Results show the advantages of the new finite element approach with simultaneous discretizations in time and space.
