**NAME**

solver_option - direct and iterative solver options (rheolef-7.2)

**DESCRIPTION**

This class implements a set of options for customizing asolver(4). An instance of this class can be supplied to thesolver(4)constructor.

**MAIN** **OPTION**

iterative This boolean flag controls the choice between an iterative or a direct method. Default is direct for matrix obtained from 1D or 2D PDE problems and iterative for 3D ones. The direct solver bases on the mumps library for a distributed environment and, otherwise, on the suitesparse or the eigen in a sequential one. The iterative solver bases oncg(5)conjugate gradient algorithm for symmetric positive definite matrix and on thegmres(5)algorithm otherwise.

**OPTION** **FOR** **DIRECT** **SOLVERS**

preferred_library The direct solver bases on an external library: it could be either mumps, suitesparse or eigen. When all these libraries are available, then mumps is the default when is is well configured with either the scoth or the metis ordering library. When neither mumps nor suitesparse are available, the eigen choice is selected. This option allows one to impose an alternative choice e.g. suitesparse, by setting the string to 'suitesparse'. This option can be provided as a list of choices, separated by a space or a coma, e.g. preferred_library='suitesparse eigen mumps'. default_preferred_library(a) This method returns all the the available libraries in the decreasing preference order. The result depends upon the matrix a, especially if it is symmetric definite positive or not, and whether it requires memory communications or not. used_library(a,sopt) This method returns the name of the available library that will be used by the solver when a direct solvers is selected. The result depends upon the properties of the a matrix and upon the solver option sopt, especially the sopt.preferred_library. compute_determinant Compute also the determinant of the matrix. Requires mumps or suitesparse. n_refinement Number of iterative refinement, when using a direct method (suitesparse only support it).

**OPTION** **FOR** **ITERATIVE** **SOLVERS**

tol This floating parameter control the tolerance for the stopping criterion. Default is the machine epsilon for the defaultFloat_2type. Recall that the defaultFloat_2type is defined at Rheolefconfigurationtime and is double by default, when no specialconfigurationoption is used. max_iter Maximum number of iteration when using an iterative method. absolute_stopping Absolute or relative stopping criterion. With the absolute criterion, the algorithm stops when norm(A*x-b) < tol, otherwise it stops when norm(A*x-b) < tol*norm(b). Default is to use an absolute stopping criterion. residue On return, gives the obtained residue, optionally divided by the initial one when using a relative stopping. It is less or equal to tol when the iterative algorithm stops with succes. n_iter On return, gives the number of iterations performed. It is always less or equal to max_iter when the iterative algorithm stops with succes. p_err A pointer to thediststream(2)where residues are printed during iterations. When this pointer is zero, no errors are printed. Default is to print to derr standarddiststream(2)error. label When printing errors, each line is prefixed by [label]. When the label is empty, each iterative algorithm uses its default label, e.g. 'cg' for thecg(5)conjugate gradient. By default the label is empty and this option is used to customize the convergence trace. krylov_dimension The dimension of the Krylov space used by thegmres(5)algorithm. Default is krylov_dimension=6.

**OPTIONS** **FOR** **DEVELOPERS**

verbose_level Can be set to 0, 1, 2 or 3. The default is 0. level_of_fill Built an incomplete factorization with the prescribed level of fill [1:5]. do_check Performs extra checks for debug. force_seq In distributed mode, restrict the linear system resolution to diagonal blocs per process. This option is only active when using the mumps direct solver. ooc Out-of-core limit (Mo/percent depending on compilation options). In development. amalgamation Level of amalgamation [10:70] for Kass. In development.
