KSPSetNormType

Sets the norm that is used for convergence testing.

Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode  KSPSetNormType(KSP ksp,KSPNormType normtype)
Logically Collective on KSP

Input Parameter

ksp - Krylov solver context
normtype - one of
  KSP_NORM_NONE - skips computing the norm, this should only be used if you are using
                the Krylov method as a smoother with a fixed small number of iterations.
                Implicitly sets KSPConvergedSkip as KSP convergence test.
  KSP_NORM_PRECONDITIONED - the default for left preconditioned solves, uses the l2 norm
                of the preconditioned residual P^{-1}(b - A x)
  KSP_NORM_UNPRECONDITIONED - uses the l2 norm of the true b - Ax residual.
  KSP_NORM_NATURAL - supported  by KSPCG, KSPCR, KSPCGNE, KSPCGS

Options Database Key

-ksp_norm_type <none,preconditioned,unpreconditioned,natural> - Notes: Not all combinations of preconditioner side (see KSPSetPCSide()) and norm type are supported by all Krylov methods. If only one is set, PETSc tries to automatically change the other to find a compatible pair. If no such combination is supported, PETSc will generate an error.

Developer Notes

Supported combinations of norm and preconditioner side are set using KSPSetSupportedNorm().
