Abstract

This paper presents new trends in parallel methods used to solve finite element matrix systems: standard iterative and direct solving methods first, and then domain decomposition methods. For example, the current status and properties of two prevailing programming environments (PVM and MPI) are finally given and compared when implemented together with a finite element time domain formulation.
