Tony Chan, Victor Eijkhout

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors outline the design principles underlying the ParPre library of parallel preconditioners. ParPre is a message-passing library of distributed preconditioners for linear systems, written using MPI and Petsc. It comprises Schwarz methods, Schur system domain decompositioning, various parallel incomplete factorizations, and multi-level methods.
