Detailed Description

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
class SolverMinRes< VectorType >

Minimal residual method for symmetric matrices.

For the requirements on matrices and vectors in order to work with this class, see the documentation of the Solver base class.

Like all other solver classes, this class has a local structure called AdditionalData which is used to pass additional parameters to the solver, like damping parameters or the number of temporary vectors. We use this additional structure instead of passing these values directly to the constructor because this makes the use of the SolverSelector and other classes much easier and guarantees that these will continue to work even if number or type of the additional parameters for a certain solver changes.

However, since the MinRes method does not need additional data, the respective structure is empty and does not offer any functionality. The constructor has a default argument, so you may call it without the additional parameter.

The preconditioner has to be positive definite and symmetric

The algorithm is taken from the Master thesis of Astrid Battermann with some changes. The full text can be found at http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/theses/public/etd-12164379662151/etd-title.html

Observing the progress of linear solver iterations

The solve() function of this class uses the mechanism described in the Solver base class to determine convergence. This mechanism can also be used to observe the progress of the iteration.

template<typename MatrixType , typename PreconditionerType >
void SolverMinRes< VectorType >::solve ( const MatrixType &  A,
VectorType x,
const VectorType b,
const PreconditionerType &  preconditioner

◆ criterion()

◆ print_vectors()

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
virtual void SolverMinRes< VectorType >::print_vectors ( const unsigned int  step,
const VectorType x,
const VectorType r,
const VectorType d 
) const
protectedvirtual

Interface for derived class. This function gets the current iteration vector, the residual and the update vector in each step. It can be used for graphical output of the convergence history.

◆ connect()

template<class VectorType >
boost::signals2::connection SolverBase< VectorType >::connect ( const std::function< SolverControl::State(const unsigned int iteration, const double check_value, const VectorType &current_iterate)> &  slot)
inlineinherited

Connect a function object that will be called periodically within iterative solvers. This function is used to attach monitors to iterative solvers, either to determine when convergence has happened, or simply to observe the progress of an iteration. See the documentation of this class for more information.

Parameters
slotA function object specified here will, with each call, receive the number of the current iteration, the value that is used to check for convergence (typically the residual of the current iterate with respect to the linear system to be solved) and the currently best available guess for the current iterate. Note that some solvers do not update the approximate solution in every iteration but only after convergence or failure has been determined (GMRES is an example); in such cases, the vector passed as the last argument to the signal is simply the best approximate at the time the signal is called, but not the vector that will be returned if the signal's return value indicates that the iteration should be terminated. The function object must return a SolverControl::State value that indicates whether the iteration should continue, has failed, or has succeeded. The results of all connected functions will then be combined to determine what should happen with the iteration.
Returns
A connection object that represents the connection from the signal to the function object. It can be used to disconnect the function object again from the signal. See the documentation of the BOOST Signals2 library for more information on connection management.

◆ subscribe()

void Subscriptor::subscribe ( std::atomic< bool > *const  validity,
const std::string &  identifier = "" 
) const
inherited

Subscribes a user of the object by storing the pointer validity. The subscriber may be identified by text supplied as identifier.

Definition at line 136 of file subscriptor.cc.

◆ unsubscribe()

void Subscriptor::unsubscribe ( std::atomic< bool > *const  validity,
const std::string &  identifier = "" 
) const
inherited

Unsubscribes a user from the object.

Note
The identifier and the validity pointer must be the same as the one supplied to subscribe().

Definition at line 156 of file subscriptor.cc.

◆ n_subscriptions()

unsigned int Subscriptor::n_subscriptions ( ) const
inlineinherited

Return the present number of subscriptions to this object. This allows to use this class for reference counted lifetime determination where the last one to unsubscribe also deletes the object.

Definition at line 300 of file subscriptor.h.

◆ list_subscribers() [1/2]

template<typename StreamType >
void Subscriptor::list_subscribers ( StreamType &  stream) const
inlineinherited

List the subscribers to the input stream.

Definition at line 317 of file subscriptor.h.

◆ list_subscribers() [2/2]

void Subscriptor::list_subscribers ( ) const
inherited

List the subscribers to deallog.

Definition at line 204 of file subscriptor.cc.

◆ serialize()

template<class Archive >
void Subscriptor::serialize ( Archive &  ar,
const unsigned int  version 
)
inlineinherited

Read or write the data of this object to or from a stream for the purpose of serialization.

This function does not actually serialize any of the member variables of this class. The reason is that what this class stores is only who subscribes to this object, but who does so at the time of storing the contents of this object does not necessarily have anything to do with who subscribes to the object when it is restored. Consequently, we do not want to overwrite the subscribers at the time of restoring, and then there is no reason to write the subscribers out in the first place.

Definition at line 309 of file subscriptor.h.

Member Data Documentation

◆ res2

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
double SolverMinRes< VectorType >::res2
protected

Within the iteration loop, the square of the residual vector is stored in this variable. The function criterion uses this variable to compute the convergence value, which in this class is the norm of the residual vector and thus the square root of the res2 value.

Definition at line 143 of file solver_minres.h.

◆ static_vector_memory

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
GrowingVectorMemory<VectorType> SolverBase< VectorType >::static_vector_memory
mutableprotectedinherited

A static vector memory object to be used whenever no such object has been given to the constructor.

Definition at line 415 of file solver.h.

◆ memory

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
VectorMemory<VectorType>& SolverBase< VectorType >::memory
protectedinherited

A reference to an object that provides memory for auxiliary vectors.

Definition at line 420 of file solver.h.

◆ iteration_status

template<class VectorType = Vector<double>>
boost::signals2::signal< SolverControl::State(const unsigned int iteration, const double check_value, const VectorType & current_iterate), StateCombiner> SolverBase< VectorType >::iteration_status
protectedinherited

A signal that iterative solvers can execute at the end of every iteration (or in an otherwise periodic fashion) to find out whether we should continue iterating or not. The signal may call one or more slots that each will make this determination by themselves, and the result over all slots (function calls) will be determined by the StateCombiner object.

The arguments passed to the signal are (i) the number of the current iteration; (ii) the value that is used to determine convergence (oftentimes the residual, but in other cases other quantities may be used as long as they converge to zero as the iterate approaches the solution of the linear system); and (iii) a vector that corresponds to the current best guess for the solution at the point where the signal is called. Note that some solvers do not update the approximate solution in every iteration but only after convergence or failure has been determined (GMRES is an example); in such cases, the vector passed as the last argument to the signal is simply the best approximate at the time the signal is called, but not the vector that will be returned if the signal's return value indicates that the iteration should be terminated.
