Notes: TSIRM is a new two-stage iteration method for solving large sparse linear systems of the form Ax=b. The main idea behind this new method is the use a least-squares residual minimization to improve the convergence of Krylov based iterative methods, typically those of GMRES variants. The principle of TSIRM algorithm is to build an outer iteration over a Krylov method, called inner solver, and to frequently store the current residual computed by the given Krylov method in a matrix of residuals S. After a few outer iterations, a least-squares minimization step is applied on the matrix composed by the saved residuals, in order to compute a better solution and to make new iterations if required. The GMRES method , or any of its variants, can potentially be used as inner solver. The minimization step consists in solving the least-squares problem min||b-ASa|| to find 'a' which minimizes the residuals (b-AS). The minimization step is performed using two solvers of linear least-squares problems: CGLS or LSQR. A new solution x with a minimal residual is computed with x=Sa.
