  • Abstract

In this paper, we study an efficient scheme for nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations discretized by mixed finite element methods. We mainly concern the case when pressure coefficients and source terms are nonlinear. To linearize the nonlinear mixed equations, we use the two-grid algorithm. We first solve the nonlinear equations on the coarse grid, then, on the fine mesh, we solve a linearized problem using Newton iteration once. It is shown that the algorithm can achieve asymptotically optimal approximation as long as the mesh sizes satisfy H =O(h1/2 ). As a result, solving such a large class of nonlinear equations will not be much more difficult than getting solutions of one linearized system.
