MATSOLVERSSTRUMPACK

"strumpack" - A solver package providing a direct sparse solver (PCLU) and a preconditioner (PCILU) using low-rank compression via the external package STRUMPACK. Consult the STRUMPACK-sparse manual for more info.

Use ./configure --download-strumpack to have PETSc installed with STRUMPACK

Use -pc_type lu -pc_factor_mat_solver_type strumpack to use this as an exact (direct) solver, use -pc_type ilu -pc_factor_mat_solver_type strumpack to enable low-rank compression (i.e, use as a preconditioner).

Works with AIJ matrices
