Aspect Ratio for Mesh Partitioning

Ralf Diekmann, Robert Preis, Frank Schlimbach and Chris Walshaw


This paper deals with the measure of Aspect Ratio for mesh partitioning and gives hints why, for certain solvers, the Aspect Ratio of partitions plays an important role. We derivne and rate different kinds of Aspect Ratio, present a new center-based partitioning method which optimizes this measure implicitly and rate several existing partitioning methods and tools under the criterion of Aspect Ratio.
