Abstract:

An algorithm for the parallel solution of tridiagonal and pentadiagonal linear systems having nonzero elements at the top right and bottom left corners. Tridiagonal systems of this kind arise from the solution of two point boundary value problems with periodic boundary conditions. Penta- diagonal systems of this kind arise from e.g the approximation of the shallow water equations by the two-stage Galerkin method combined with a high accuracy compact approximation to the first derivative Navon, 1983.
