PCEISENSTAT

An implementation of SSOR (symmetric successive over relaxation, symmetric Gauss-Seidel) preconditioning that incorporates Eisenstat's trick to reduce the amount of computation needed.

Options Database Keys

-pc_eisenstat_omega <omega> - Sets omega
-pc_eisenstat_no_diagonal_scaling - Activates PCEisenstatNoDiagonalScaling()

Notes: Only implemented for the SeqAIJ matrix format. Not a true parallel SOR, in parallel this implementation corresponds to block Jacobi with SOR on each block.
