Note: interpreting iterative methods convergence with diffusion point of view

Hong, Dohy;

  • Published: 05 Apr 2013
In this paper, we explain the convergence speed of different iteration schemes with the fluid diffusion view when solving a linear fixed point problem. This interpretation allows one to better understand why power iteration or Jacobi iteration may converge faster or slower than Gauss-Seidel iteration.
