Iterative methods
CG, SYMMLQ, GMRES are provided, though these are not the main focus of package; BlockSolve can be interfaced to Petsc for more iterative methods.
diagonal scaling, block Jacobi with blocks corresponding to the cliques factored out of the quotient graph, incomplete LU and Cholesky.
Data structures
Internal, as a C structure..
Access operations on the data structure
None; the definition of the structure is given in the manual.
Operations using the data structure
Iterative solution of the system and of a shifted system, application of the matrix and the preconditionergif.
