We consider a multigrid algorithm for higher order finite difference scheme for the Poisson problem on rectangular domain. Several smoothers including Jacobi, Red-black Gauss-Seidel are tested and compared. Since higher order scheme gives much more accurate result then 5-point scheme, one may use small number of levels with higher order scheme and thus the overall cost is reduced quite a lot. The numerical experiment compares the two cases.
