Sets the delay in the lower bound error estimate in the generalized Golub-Kahan bidiagonalization preconditioner.

Collective on PC


The algorithm uses a lower bound estimate of the error in energy norm as stopping criterion. The lower bound of the error ||u-u^k||_H is expressed as a truncated sum. The error at iteration k can only be measured at iteration (k + delay), and thus the algorithm needs at least (delay + 1) iterations to stop. For more details on the generalized Golub-Kahan bidiagonalization method and its lower bound stopping criterion, please refer to
