Abstract

Abstract—In this paper, we study a class of modified incomplete Cholesky factorization preconditioners LL T with two control parameters including dropping rules. Before computing preconditioners, the modified incomplete Cholesky factorization algorithm allows to decide the sparsity of incomplete factorization preconditioners by two fillin control parameters: (1) p, the number of the largest number p of nonzero entries in each row; (2) dropping tolerance. With RCM reordering scheme as a crucial operation for incomplete factorization preconditioners, our numerical results show that both the number of PCOCG and PCG iterations and the total computing time are reduced evidently for appropriate fill-in control parameters. Numerical tests on harmonic analysis for 2D and 3D scattering problems show the efficiency of our method. 1
