KSPChebyshevSetEstimateEigenvalues

Automatically estimate the eigenvalues to use for Chebyshev

Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode KSPChebyshevSetEstimateEigenvalues(KSP ksp,PetscReal a,PetscReal b,PetscReal c,PetscReal d)
Logically Collective on KSP

Input Parameters

ksp - the Krylov space context
a - multiple of min eigenvalue estimate to use for min Chebyshev bound (or PETSC_DECIDE)
b - multiple of max eigenvalue estimate to use for min Chebyshev bound (or PETSC_DECIDE)
c - multiple of min eigenvalue estimate to use for max Chebyshev bound (or PETSC_DECIDE)
d - multiple of max eigenvalue estimate to use for max Chebyshev bound (or PETSC_DECIDE)

Options Database

-ksp_chebyshev_estimate_eigenvalues a,b,c,d - Notes: The Chebyshev bounds are estimated using
   minbound = a*minest + b*maxest
   maxbound = c*minest + d*maxest
The default configuration targets the upper part of the spectrum for use as a multigrid smoother, so only the maximum eigenvalue estimate is used. The minimum eigenvalue estimate obtained by Krylov iteration is typically not accurate until the method has converged.

If 0.0 is passed for all transform arguments (a,b,c,d), eigenvalue estimation is disabled.

The default transform is (0,0.1; 0,1.1) which targets the "upper" part of the spectrum, as desirable for use with multigrid.
