This paper formalizes a general technique to combine different methods in the solution of large systems of nonlinear equations using parallel asynchronous implementations on distributed-memory multiprocessor systems. Such combinations of methods, referred to as team algorithms, are evaluated as a way of obtaining desirable properties of different methods and a sufficient condition for their convergence is derived. The load flow problem of electrical power networks is presented as an example problem that, under certain conditions, has the characteristics to make a team algorithm an appealing choice for its solution. Experimental results of an implementation on an Intel iPSC/860 Hypercube are reported, showing that considerable speedup and robustness can be obtained using team algorithms
