Synopsis:

In 1987, Dryja and Widlund introduced a domain decomposition method "Additive Schwarz Method" (ASM) and showed that it works well for the Poisson equation. Over the past 30 years, ASM has evolved into a major algorithm for solving many types of partial differential equations on large scale parallel computers with millions of cores. In this talk, we discuss some recent development of ASM for solving multi-physics problems involving fluid-structure interaction with applications in biomechanics.
