Report Typos and Errors


Runs a KSP solver with preconditioner for the entire problem on subgroups of processors Options for the redundant preconditioners can be set with -redundant_pc_xxx for the redundant KSP with -redundant_ksp_xxx

Options Database

-pc_redundant_number <n> -number of redundant solves, for example if you are using 64 MPI processes and use an n of 4 there will be 4 parallel solves each on 16 = 64/4 processes.


The default KSP is preonly and the default PC is LU.

PCFactorSetShiftType() applied to this PC will convey they shift type into the inner PC if it is factorization based.

Developer Notes

Note that PCSetInitialGuessNonzero() is not used by this class but likely should be.
