double  omega 
double  min_diagonal 
unsigned int  overlap 
unsigned int  n_sweeps 
Standardized data struct to pipe additional flags to the preconditioner. The parameter block_size
sets the size of small blocks. It is recommended to choose this parameter not too large (a few hundreds at most) since this implementation uses a dense matrix for the block. The parameter block_creation_type
allows to pass the strategy for finding the blocks to Ifpack. The parameter omega
specifies the relaxation parameter in the SSOR preconditioner. The parameter min_diagonal
can be used to make the application of the preconditioner also possible when some diagonal elements are zero. In a default application this would mean that we divide by zero, so by setting the parameter min_diagonal
to a small nonzero value the SOR will work on a matrix that is not too far away from the one we want to treat. Finally, overlap
governs the overlap of the partitions when the preconditioner runs in parallel, forming a socalled additive Schwarz preconditioner.

) 
Constructor. By default, use a block size of 1, use linear subdivision of the rows, set the damping parameter to one, we do not modify the diagonal, and there is no overlap (i.e. in parallel, we run a BlockJacobi preconditioner, where each block is inverted approximately by a block SOR).

unsigned int TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::block_size 
This specifies the size of blocks.

std::string TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::block_creation_type 
Strategy for creation of blocks passed on to Ifpack block relaxation (variable 'partitioner: type') with this string as the given value. Available types in Ifpack include "linear" (i.e., divide the local range of the matrix in slices of the block size), "greedy" "metis". For a full list, see the documentation of Ifpack.

double TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::omega 
This specifies the (over) relaxation parameter in the SOR preconditioner.
Definition at line 694 of file trilinos_precondition.h.
double TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::min_diagonal 
This specifies the minimum value the diagonal elements should have. This might be necessary when the SSOR preconditioner is used on matrices with zero diagonal elements. In that case, a straight forward application would not be possible since we divide by the diagonal element.

unsigned int TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::overlap 
This determines how large the overlap of the local matrix portions on each processor in a parallel application should be.

unsigned int TrilinosWrappers::PreconditionBlockSSOR::AdditionalData::n_sweeps 
Sets how many times the given operation should be applied during the vmult() operation.
