A low communication parallel algorithm is developed for the solution of time­
dependent non­linear PDEs. The parallelization is achieved by domain decomposition.
The discretization in time is performed via a third order semi­implicit stiffly stable
scheme. The elemental solutions in the subdomains are constructed using a high­order
method with the Local Fourier Basis (LFB).
The continuity of the global solution is accomplished by a point­wise matching of
the local subsolutions on the interfaces. The matching relations are derived in terms of
the jumps on the interfaces. The LFB method enables splitting a 2­D problem with a
global coupling of the interface unknowns into a set of uncoupled 1­D differential equa­
tions. Localization properties of an elliptic operator, resulting from the discretization
in time of a time­dependent problem, are utilized in order to simplify the matching
relations. In effect, only local (neighbor­to­neighbor) communication between the pro­
cessors becomes necessary.
