Pipelined conjugate gradient method [GV14]. Pipelined Krylov Methods


This method has only a single non-blocking reduction per iteration, compared to 2 blocking for standard KSPPCG. The non-blocking reduction is overlapped by the matrix-vector product and preconditioner application.

See also KSPPIPECR, where the reduction is only overlapped with the matrix-vector product and KSPGROPPCG

MPI configuration may be necessary for reductions to make asynchronous progress, which is important for performance of pipelined methods. See What steps are necessary to make the pipelined solvers execute efficiently?
