Report Typos and Errors


Applies a (2) deflated, (1) additive, or (3) balanced coarse correction. In what follows, E = Z Pmat Z^T and Q = Z^T E^-1 Z.


#include "petscpc.h" 
static PetscErrorCode PCHPDDMShellApply(PC pc, Vec x, Vec y)
   (1) y =                Pmat^-1              x + Q x,
   (2) y =                Pmat^-1 (I - Amat Q) x + Q x (default),
   (3) y = (I - Q Amat^T) Pmat^-1 (I - Amat Q) x + Q x.

Input Parameters

pc - preconditioner context
x - input vector

Output Parameter

y - output vector

Application Interface Routine: PCApply()


The options of Pmat^1 = pc(Pmat) are prefixed by -pc_hpddm_levels_1_pc_. Z is a tall-and-skiny matrix assembled by HPDDM. The number of processes on which (Z Pmat Z^T) is aggregated is set via -pc_hpddm_coarse_p. The options of (Z Pmat Z^T)^-1 = ksp(Z Pmat Z^T) are prefixed by -pc_hpddm_coarse_ (KSPPREONLY and PCCHOLESKY by default), unless a multilevel correction is turned on, in which case, this function is called recursively at each level except the coarsest one. (1) and (2) visit the "next" level (in terms of coarsening) once per application, while (3) visits it twice, so it is asymptotically twice costlier. (2) is not symmetric even if both Amat and Pmat are symmetric.
