PCNN

Balancing Neumann-Neumann for scalar elliptic PDEs.

Options Database Keys

Notes: The matrix used with this preconditioner must be of type MATIS

Unlike more 'conventional' Neumann-Neumann preconditioners this iterates over ALL the degrees of freedom, NOT just those on the interface (this allows the use of approximate solvers on the subdomains; though in our experience using approximate solvers is slower.).

Options for the coarse grid preconditioner can be set with -nn_coarse_pc_xxx Options for the Dirichlet subproblem preconditioner can be set with -is_localD_pc_xxx Options for the Neumann subproblem preconditioner can be set with -is_localN_pc_xxx

-pc_nn_turn_off_second_balancing - do not balance the solution solving the local Neumann problems (this skips the second coarse grid solve in the preconditioner)
