KSPLGMRES

Augments the standard GMRES approximation space with approximations to the error from previous restart cycles.

Options Database Keys

-ksp_gmres_restart <restart> - total approximation space size (Krylov directions + error approximations)
-ksp_gmres_haptol <tol> - sets the tolerance for "happy ending" (exact convergence)
-ksp_gmres_preallocate - preallocate all the Krylov search directions initially (otherwise groups of vectors are allocated as needed)
-ksp_gmres_classicalgramschmidt - use classical (unmodified) Gram-Schmidt to orthogonalize against the Krylov space (fast) (the default)
-ksp_gmres_modifiedgramschmidt - use modified Gram-Schmidt in the orthogonalization (more stable, but slower)
-ksp_gmres_cgs_refinement_type <never,ifneeded,always> - determine if iterative refinement is used to increase the stability of the classical Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization.
-ksp_gmres_krylov_monitor - plot the Krylov space generated
-ksp_lgmres_augment <k> - number of error approximations to augment the Krylov space with
-ksp_lgmres_constant - use a constant approx. space size (only affects restart cycles < num. error approx.(k), i.e. the first k restarts)

To run LGMRES(m, k) as described in the above paper, use

-ksp_gmres_restart <m+k> -ksp_lgmres_augment <k>

Notes: Supports both left and right preconditioning, but not symmetric.
