    Abstract

    We present a parallel fully coupled implicit Newton-Krylov-Schwarz algorithm for the numerical solution of the unsteady magnetic reconnection problem described by a system of reduced magnetohydrodynamics equations in two dimensions. In particular, we discuss the linear and nonlinear convergence, the parallel performance of a third-order implicit algorithm and compare to solutions obtained with an explicit method.
