Speaker Info

NC State

We will discuss recent results on the local convergence of Anderson Acceleration (also known as Pulay mixing or DIIS). This is an algorithm for accelerating the convergence of fixed point or Picard iteration and is widely used in quantum chemistry and physics codes.
In this talk we will discuss our convergence results for the method, illustrate the results with an application to radiative transport, and report on some recent results on non-differentiable nonlinearities and
global convergence.
