SNESNCG

Nonlinear Conjugate-Gradient method for the solution of general nonlinear systems.

Options Database

-snes_ncg_type <fr, prp, dy, hs, cd> - Choice of conjugate-gradient update parameter, default is prp.
-snes_linesearch_type <cp,l2,basic> - Line search type.
-snes_ncg_monitor - Print relevant information about the ncg iteration.

Notes: This solves the nonlinear system of equations F(x) = 0 using the nonlinear generalization of the conjugate gradient method. This may be used with a nonlinear preconditioner used to pick the new search directions, but otherwise chooses the initial search direction as F(x) for the initial guess x.
