The BiConjugate Gradient Stabilized method (Bi-CGSTAB) was developed to solve nonsymmetric linear systems while avoiding the often irregular convergence patterns of the Conjugate Gradient Squared method (see Van der Vorst ). Instead of computing the CGS sequence , Bi-CGSTAB computes where is an th degree polynomial describing a steepest descent update.
