Combination preconditioning and self-adjointness in non-standard inner products with application to saddle point problems

By Martin Stoll and A. J. Wathen


It is widely appreciated that the iterative solution of linear systems of equations with large sparse matrices is much easier when the matrix is symmetric. It is equally advantageous to employ symmetric iterative methods when a nonsymmetric matrix is self-adjoint in a non-standard inner product. Here, general conditions for such self-adjointness are considered. In particular, a number of known examples for saddle point systems are surveyed and combined to make new combination preconditioners which are self-adjoint in di erent inner products
