SNESKSPSetParametersEW

Sets parameters for Eisenstat-Walker convergence criteria for the linear solvers within an inexact Newton method.

Synopsis

#include "petscsnes.h"  
PetscErrorCode  SNESKSPSetParametersEW(SNES snes,PetscInt version,PetscReal rtol_0,PetscReal rtol_max,PetscReal gamma,PetscReal alpha,PetscReal alpha2,PetscReal threshold)
Logically Collective on SNES

Input Parameters

snes - SNES context
version - version 1, 2 (default is 2) or 3
rtol_0 - initial relative tolerance (0 <= rtol_0 < 1)
rtol_max - maximum relative tolerance (0 <= rtol_max < 1)
gamma - multiplicative factor for version 2 rtol computation (0 <= gamma2 <= 1)
alpha - power for version 2 rtol computation (1 < alpha <= 2)
alpha2 - power for safeguard
threshold - threshold for imposing safeguard (0 < threshold < 1)

Note

Version 3 was contributed by Luis Chacon, June 2006.

Use PETSC_DEFAULT to retain the default for any of the parameters.
