For parameter-dependent nonlinear elliptic obstacle problems a path-following multi-grid continuation strategy is developed combining a nested iteration type scheme as predictor with a subsequent multi-grid method as corrector. The performance of the algorithm is illustrated by some numerical results for the Bratu problem.
