Approximation of non linear eigenvalue problems represent the key ingredient in quantum chemistry. These approximation are much computer demanding and these approximations saturate the ressources of many HPC centers. Being nonlinear, the approximation methods are iterative and a way to reduce the cost is to use different grids as has been proposed in fluid mechanics for various non linear problems as the Navier Stokes problem. We explain the basics of the approximation, present the numerical analysis and numerical results that illustrate the good behavior of the two grids scheme. This work has been done in collaboration with Eric Cancès and Rachida Chakir.
