PCML

Use algebraic multigrid preconditioning. This preconditioner requires you provide fine grid discretization matrix. The coarser grid matrices and restriction/interpolation operators are computed by ML, with the matrices coverted to PETSc matrices in aij format and the restriction/interpolation operators wrapped as PETSc shell matrices.
