KSPPIPECGRR

Pipelined conjugate gradient method with automated residual replacements. This method has only a single non-blocking reduction per iteration, compared to 2 blocking for standard CG. The non-blocking reduction is overlapped by the matrix-vector product and preconditioner application.

KSPPIPECGRR improves the robustness of KSPPIPECG by adding an automated residual replacement strategy. True residual and other auxiliary variables are computed explicitly in a number of dynamically determined iterations to counteract the accumulation of rounding errors and thus attain a higher maximal final accuracy.

See also KSPPIPECG, which is identical to KSPPIPECGRR without residual replacements. See also KSPPIPECR, where the reduction is only overlapped with the matrix-vector product.

Notes

MPI configuration may be necessary for reductions to make asynchronous progress, which is important for performance of pipelined methods. See the FAQ on the PETSc website for details.
