I have been doing a lot of research and using a lot of various programs and in order to try and understand how these programs work, I've been reading about various solvers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And in the documentation, they mention a series of different types of solvers and matrices and I was wondering if someone would be able to explain them to me?

- LU

- Sparse

(to name a few).

(in particular in Ansys CFX, and COMSOL)
