This book contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Domain Decomposition, held in June 1992 in Como, Italy. Developments in this area are driven by advances in computer technology as well as by a strengthening in the mathematical foundations of the subject. Compared to just a few years ago, experts have much more experience with difficult applications and have accumulated solid evidence that these methods provide valuable tools for solving problems in science and engineering. Much of the work in this field focuses on developing numerical methods for large algebraic systems, methods central to producing efficient codes for computational fluid dynamics, elasticity, and other core problems of continuum mechanics.These methods hold the promise of allowing simulations of very high resolution with relative ease. This approach allows for the flexibility of using different numerical method and different models, each appropriate for the subregion at hand, to solve large problems in a cost-effective way. Containing contributions by international experts in this area, this book reports on the state-of-the-art in the growing field of domain decomposition.
