Sets the function to be used to determine convergence.

PetscErrorCode KSPSetConvergenceTest(KSP ksp, PetscErrorCode (*converge)(KSP ksp, PetscInt it, PetscReal rnorm, KSPConvergedReason *reason, void *ctx), void *ctx, PetscErrorCode (*destroy)(void *ctx))

Logically Collective

Input Parameters#

  • ksp - iterative context obtained from KSPCreate()

  • converge - pointer to the function

  • ctx - context for private data for the convergence routine (may be NULL)

  • destroy - a routine for destroying the context (may be NULL)

Calling sequence of converge#

  • ksp - iterative context obtained from KSPCreate()

  • it - iteration number

  • rnorm - (estimated) 2-norm of (preconditioned) residual

  • reason - the reason why it has converged or diverged

  • ctx - optional convergence context, as set by KSPSetConvergenceTest()

Calling sequence of destroy#

  • ctx - the context


Must be called after the KSP type has been set so put this after a call to KSPSetType(), or KSPSetFromOptions().

The default convergence test, KSPConvergedDefault(), aborts if the residual grows to more than 10000 times the initial residual.

The default is a combination of relative and absolute tolerances. The residual value that is tested may be an approximation; routines that need exact values should compute them.

In the default PETSc convergence test, the precise values of reason are macros such as KSP_CONVERGED_RTOL, which are defined in petscksp.h.
