Abstract: The fast adaptive composite grid (FAC) method is a systematic process for solving differential boundary value problems. FAC uses global and local uniform grids both to define the composite grid problem and to interact for its fast solution. It can with little added cost substantially improve accuracy of the coarse grid solution and is very suitable for vector and parallel computation. This paper develops both the theoretical and practical aspects of FAC as it applies to elliptic problems.
