Abstract : Several aspects of adaptive methods for partial differential equations implemented on vector and parallel computers were investigated on this effort. A new techniques for mapping mesh points to processors in a static way has been developed, this takes advantage of the structure of the family of solutions without singling out any one solution. Three publications and two technical reports resulted from this effort, as well as two conference proceedings papers and four presentations. Papers included such titles as A comparison of domain decomposition techniques for elliptic partial differential equations and their parallel implementation, Local uniform mesh refinement on loosely-complied parallel processors, and Dynamic grid manipulation for partial differential equations on hypercube parallel processors.
