Relative threshold to use for dropping edges in aggregation graph


#include "petscpc.h" 
PetscErrorCode PCGAMGSetThreshold(PC pc, PetscReal v[], PetscInt n)
Not collective on PC

Input Parameters

pc - the preconditioner context
threshold - the threshold value, 0.0 means keep all nonzero entries in the graph; negative means keep even zero entries in the graph

Options Database Key

-pc_gamg_threshold <threshold> - Notes: Increasing the threshold decreases the rate of coarsening. Conversely reducing the threshold increases the rate of coarsening (aggressive coarsening) and thereby reduces the complexity of the coarse grids, and generally results in slower solver converge rates. Reducing coarse grid complexity reduced the complexity of Galerkin coarse grid construction considerably. Before coarsening or aggregating the graph, GAMG removes small values from the graph with this threshold, and thus reducing the coupling in the graph and a different (perhaps better) coarser set of points.
