SHERMAN: Oil reservoir simulation challenge matrices

from the Harwell-Boeing Collection

Source: Andy Sherman, Nolan and Associates, Houston, TX.
Discipline: Oil reservoir modeling
Accession: Autumn 1984

In the summer of 1984, Andy Sherman of Nolan and Associates, Houston, TX, USA, issued a challenge to the petroleum industry and the numerical analysis community for the fastest solution to a set of 5 systems of linear equations extracted from oil reservoir modeling programs. These are those five matrices. Each matrix arises from a three dimensional simulation model on a NX × NY × NZ grid using a seven-point finite-difference approximation with NC equations and unknowns per grid block. The corresponding right-hand side vector is also supplied. Symmetric matrices from partial differential equations (PDEs)

Matrices in this set:
