A black box generalized conjugate gradient solver with inner iterations and variable-step preconditioning

- O. Axelsson, P. Vassilevski
- Mathematics
- 1 August 1991

The generalized conjugate gradient method proposed by Axelsson is studied in the case when a variable-step preconditioning is used. This can be the case when the preconditioned system is solved app...
