Preconditioners
preconditioners
This module contains a class that augments a matrix preconditioner by setting the
symmetricpositivedefinite option. Users can provide this class as a pc_python_type
entry to a PETSc solver option dictionary.
SPDAssembledPC
Bases: AssembledPC
Version of AssembledPC that sets the SPD flag for the matrix.
For use in the velocity fieldsplit_0 block in combination with gamg. Setting PETSc MatOption MAT_SPD (for Symmetric Positive Definite matrices) at the moment only changes the Krylov method for the eigenvalue estimate in the Chebyshev smoothers to CG.
