In the present paper we describe and classify these numerous variants such as BPX, hierachical basis, HBMG, local multi-grid etc. in the framework of multi-grid. We compare additive and multiplicative multi-grid and particularly investigate the different behaviour with respect to smoothing. Theoretical as well as numerical results are presented.
