  • Abstract

An efficient Newton multiscale multigrid (Newton-MSMG) for solving large nonlinear systems arising in the fourth-order compact difference discretisation of 2D semilinear Poisson equations is presented. The Newton-MG method is employed to calculate approximation solutions on coarse and fine grids and then a completed Richardson extrapolation is used to construct a sixth-order extrapolated solution on the entire fine grid directly. The method is applied to two nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann equations and numerical simulations show that the Newton-MSMG method is a cost-effective approach with the sixth-order accuracy.
