Detailed Description

template<typename VectorType>
class MGSmootherBase< VectorType >

Base class for multigrid smoothers. Does nothing but defining the interface used by multigrid methods.

The smoother interface provides two methods, a smooth() method and an apply() method. The multigrid preconditioner interfaces distinguish between the two for efficiency reasons: Upon entry to the preconditioner operations, the vector u needs to be set to zero and smoothing starts by a simple application of the smoother on the rhs vector. This method is provided by the apply() method of this class. It is the same as first setting u to zero and then calling smooth(), but for many classes the separate apply() interface is more efficient because it can skip one matrix-vector product.

In the multigrid preconditioner interfaces, the apply() method is used for the pre-smoothing operation because the previous content in the solution vector needs to be overwritten for a new incoming residual. On the other hand, all subsequent operations need to smooth the content already present in the vector u given the right hand side, which is done by smooth().

As opposed to the smooth() function, this function applies the action of the smoothing, overwriting the previous content in the vector u. This function must be equivalent to the following code

u = 0;
smooth(level, u, rhs);

but can usually be implemented more efficiently than the former. If a particular smoother does not override the apply() method, the default implementation as described here is used.

In the multigrid preconditioner interfaces, the apply() method is used for the pre-smoothing operation because the previous content in the solution vector needs to be overwritten for a new incoming residual. On the other hand, all subsequent operations need to smooth the content already present in the vector u given the right hand side, which is done by smooth().

Reimplemented in MGSmootherPrecondition< MatrixType, PreconditionerType, VectorType >, MGSmootherRelaxation< MatrixType, RelaxationType, VectorType >, and mg::SmootherRelaxation< RelaxationType, VectorType >.
