Abstract
An efficient algorithm is developed for partitioning of unstructured finite element meshes. A new graph model is presented and employed for transforming the connectivity properties of meshes. This method leads to a load balance partitioning in which the number of interface nodes are confined to the smallest possible, and aspect ratios of subdomains are desired values. Examples are included to illustrate the performance and efficiency of the presented method.
