PCLU

Uses a direct solver, based on LU factorization, as a preconditioner

Options Database Keys

-pc_factor_reuse_ordering - Activate PCFactorSetReuseOrdering()
-pc_factor_mat_solver_package - Actives PCFactorSetMatSolverPackage() to choose the direct solver, like superlu
-pc_factor_reuse_fill - Activates PCFactorSetReuseFill()
-pc_factor_fill <fill> - Sets fill amount
-pc_factor_in_place - Activates in-place factorization
-pc_factor_mat_ordering_type <nd,rcm,...> - Sets ordering routine
-pc_factor_pivot_in_blocks <true,false> - allow pivoting within the small blocks during factorization (may increase stability of factorization.
-pc_factor_shift_type <shifttype> - Sets shift type or PETSC_DECIDE for the default; use '-help' for a list of available types
-pc_factor_shift_amount <shiftamount> - Sets shift amount or PETSC_DECIDE for the default
-pc_factor_nonzeros_along_diagonal - permutes the rows and columns to try to put nonzero value along the diagonal.

Notes: Not all options work for all matrix formats Run with -help to see additional options for particular matrix formats or factorization algorithms

Notes: Usually this will compute an "exact" solution in one iteration and does not need a Krylov method (i.e. you can use -ksp_type preonly, or KSPSetType(ksp,KSPPREONLY) for the Krylov method
