Abstract
We are interested in iterative algorithms that lend themselves to high-level parallel computation. One example is the solution of very large and sparse linear systems with multiple right-hand sides. We report on some recent work on this topic and present new results on the parallel solution of this problem. We show that algorithms that perform some amount of information exchange while the systems are being solved can be very competitive compared to algorithms that proceed independently.
