Boundary-Value Problems
6.4 The Alternating Direction Implicit (ADI) Method
When the partial differential equation 2u = 0 is solved by the finite difference method, the
resulting coefficient matrix is spare. The sparseness increases as the number of nodes
increases. If there are 21 nodes, 81% of the coefficients are zeros; if there are 105 nodes,
96% are zeros. The system of equations for the one-dimensional case always has a
tridiagonal coefficient matrix for which the efficient Thomas algorithm can be used. The ADI
method can be applied for the two or three-dimensional system to get a tridiagonal
coefficient matrix. We will use a two dimensional example of the Laplace equation
2u = 0
Using finite difference, the value at the node (i, j) for iteration (m+1) is given as

ui(,mj1) =

1 (m)
[ ui , j 1 + ui(,mj)1 + ui(m1,) j + ui(m1,) j ]
4

## We now add and subtract ui(,mj ) from this equation to yield

ui(,mj1) = ui(,mj ) +

1 (m)
[ ui , j 1 + ui(,mj)1 + ui(m1,) j + ui(m1,) j 4 ui(,mj ) ]
4

or equivalently

ui(,mj1) ui(,mj ) =

1
{[ ui(,mj)1 2 ui(,mj ) + ui(,mj)1 ] + [ ui(m1,) j 2 ui(,mj ) + ui(m1,) j ]}
4

Each iteration is considered to be a two-step procedure wherein the first step advances to the
1
(m+ ) level and the second step to the (m+1) level.
2
First step:

ui(,mj1/ 2 ) ui(,mj ) =

1
{[ ui(,mj11/ 2 ) 2 ui(,mj1/ 2 ) + ui(,mj11/ 2 ) ] + [ ui(m1,) j 2 ui(,mj ) + ui(m1,) j ]}
4

Second step:

ui(,mj1) ui(,mj1/ 2 ) =

1
{[ ui(,mj11/ 2 ) 2 ui(,mj1/ 2 ) + ui(,mj11/ 2 ) ] + [ ui(m1, j1) 2 ui(,mj1) + ui(m1, j1) ]}

The ADI method produces a tridiagonal set of equations at the (m+1/2) level. The equations
can be solved along all rows of the grid, one row at a time. Once, all nodes have been
elevated to the (m+1/2) level, a similar procedure for the column of nodes is applied. A twostep iteration is completed when the new values ui(,mj1) are calculated.
