Constructor. Note that BoomerAMG offers a lot more options to set than what is exposed here.

bool PETScWrappers::PreconditionBoomerAMG::AdditionalData::symmetric_operator 
Set this flag to true if you have a symmetric system matrix and you want to use a solver which assumes a symmetric preconditioner like CG. The relaxation is done with SSOR/Jacobi when set to true and with SOR/Jacobi otherwise.

double PETScWrappers::PreconditionBoomerAMG::AdditionalData::strong_threshold 
Threshold of when nodes are considered strongly connected. See HYPRE_BoomerAMGSetStrongThreshold(). Recommended values are 0.25 for 2d and 0.5 for 3d problems, but it is problem dependent.

double PETScWrappers::PreconditionBoomerAMG::AdditionalData::max_row_sum 
If set to a value smaller than 1.0 then diagonally dominant parts of the matrix are treated as having no strongly connected nodes. If the row sum weighted by the diagonal entry is bigger than the given value, it is considered diagonally dominant. This feature is turned of by setting the value to 1.0. This is the default as some matrices can result in having only diagonally dominant entries and thus no multigrid levels are constructed. The default in BoomerAMG for this is 0.9. When you try this, check for a reasonable number of levels created.

unsigned int PETScWrappers::PreconditionBoomerAMG::AdditionalData::aggressive_coarsening_num_levels 
Number of levels of aggressive coarsening. Increasing this value reduces the construction time and memory requirements but may decrease effectiveness.
Definition at line 738 of file petsc_precondition.h.
bool PETScWrappers::PreconditionBoomerAMG::AdditionalData::output_details 
Setting this flag to true produces debug output from HYPRE, when the preconditioner is constructed.
