Alternative method to time discretization

Hi all,

My current code uses time discretization to solve for the system. This has been somewhat inefficient for my application and I was wondering if there was another, more efficient method to handle time in Fenics.

Thanks,
Adam

No.

Since this answer is apparently too short, I want to point out that computer can only handle discrete values, hence it is necessary to discretize your problem.
Alright, I had a feeling this was the case. Just to confirm in a slightly different format, there is no alternative to setting up a for-loop and solving iteratively for each time step.

Thanks for the help!

There are space-time methods which might not result in a iterative time-stepping.
