SNESSetLagJacobianPersists

Set whether or not the Jacobian lagging persists through multiple solves

Synopsis

#include "petscsnes.h"  
PetscErrorCode  SNESSetLagJacobianPersists(SNES snes,PetscBool flg)
Logically collective on SNES

Input Parameter

snes - the SNES context
flg - jacobian lagging persists if true

Options Database Keys

-snes_lag_jacobian_persists <flg> - Notes: This is useful both for nonlinear preconditioning, where it's appropriate to have the Jacobian be stale by several solves, and for implicit time-stepping, where Jacobian lagging in the inner nonlinear solve over several timesteps may present huge efficiency gains.

Keywords

SNES, nonlinear, lag
