    In the first part of this work, we compare the performance of three iterative methods: Gauss-Jacobi, Gauss-Seidel, and red-black Gauss-Seidel. The comparison is based on their theoretical rate of convergence and their amenability for vectorization and parallelization on a particular problem. We further compare these methods with a multigrid method. In the second part of the paper, we use a multigrid method to solve numerically the von Karman equations (a semilinear system of partial differential equations) that describe the buckling of a rectangular plate.
