SNESSetLagPreconditionerPersists

Set whether or not the preconditioner lagging persists through multiple solves

Synopsis

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

Input Parameter

snes - the SNES context
flg - preconditioner 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 preconditioner be stale by several solves, and for implicit time-stepping, where preconditioner lagging in the inner nonlinear solve over several timesteps may present huge efficiency gains.

Keywords

SNES, nonlinear, lag
