This paper investigates the performance of a parallel Newton, first-order system least-squares (FOSLS) finite-element method with local adaptive refinement and algebraic multigrid (AMG) applied to incompressible, resistive magnetohydrodynamics. In particular, an island coalescence test problem is studied that models magnetic reconnection using a reduced two-dimensional (2D) model of a tokamak fusi... read more
