PetscErrorCode  SNESSetTolerances(SNES snes,PetscReal abstol,PetscReal rtol,PetscReal stol,PetscInt maxit,PetscInt maxf)
Logically Collective on SNES

Input Parameters

snes - the SNES context
abstol - absolute convergence tolerance
rtol - relative convergence tolerance
stol - convergence tolerance in terms of the norm of the change in the solution between steps, || delta x || < stol*|| x ||
maxit - maximum number of iterations
maxf - maximum number of function evaluations

Options Database Keys

-snes_atol <abstol> - Sets abstol
-snes_rtol <rtol> - Sets rtol
