Detailed Description

An implementation of the solver interface using the sparse direct MUMPS solver through PETSc. This class has the usual interface of all other solver classes but it is of course different in that it doesn't implement an iterative solver. As a consequence, things like the SolverControl object have no particular meaning here.

MUMPS allows to make use of symmetry in this matrix. In this class this is made possible by the set_symmetric_mode() function. If your matrix is symmetric, you can use this class as follows:

solver.solve(system_matrix, solution, system_rhs);
The class internally calls KSPSetFromOptions thus you are able to use all the PETSc parameters for MATSOLVERMUMPS package. See
Daniel Brauss, Alexander Grayver, 2012

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ SparseDirectMUMPS()

PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::SparseDirectMUMPS ( SolverControl cn,
const MPI_Comm &  mpi_communicator = PETSC_COMM_SELF,
const AdditionalData data = AdditionalData() 


Definition at line 634 of file

Member Function Documentation

◆ solve()

void PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::solve ( const MatrixBase A,
VectorBase x,
const VectorBase b 

The method to solve the linear system.

Definition at line 671 of file

◆ set_symmetric_mode()

void PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::set_symmetric_mode ( const bool  flag)

The method allows to take advantage if the system matrix is symmetric by using LDL^T decomposition instead of more expensive LU. The argument indicates whether the matrix is symmetric or not.

Definition at line 884 of file

◆ set_solver_type()

void PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::set_solver_type ( KSP &  ksp) const

Function that takes a Krylov Subspace Solver context object, and sets the type of solver that is requested by the derived class.

KSPPREONLY implements a stub method that applies only the preconditioner. Its use is due to SparseDirectMUMPS being a direct (rather than iterative) solver

The KSPPREONLY solver of PETSc never calls the convergence monitor, which leads to failure even when everything was ok. Therefore, the SolverControl status is set to some nice values, which guarantee a nice result at the end of the solution process.

Using a PREONLY solver with a nonzero initial guess leads PETSc to produce some error messages.

Implements PETScWrappers::SolverBase.

◆ convergence_test()

PetscErrorCode PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::convergence_test ( KSP  ksp,
const PetscInt  iteration,
const PetscReal  residual_norm,
KSPConvergedReason *  reason,
void *  solver_control 

A function that is used in PETSc as a callback to check convergence. It takes the information provided from PETSc and checks it against deal.II's own SolverControl objects to see if convergence has been reached.

Member Data Documentation

◆ additional_data

const AdditionalData PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::additional_data

Store a copy of flags for this particular solver.

Definition at line 970 of file petsc_solver.h.

◆ symmetric_mode

bool PETScWrappers::SparseDirectMUMPS::symmetric_mode

Flag specifies whether matrix being factorized is symmetric or not. It influences the type of the used preconditioner (PCLU or PCCHOLESKY)
