It is well known that standard incomplete factorization (IC) methods exist for M-matrices 14] and that modiied incomplete factorization (MIC) methods exist for weakly diagonally dominant matrices 8]. The restriction to these classes of matrices excludes many realistic general applications to discretized partial diieren-tial equations. We present a technique to avoid this problem by making an initial modiication already at the element level, followed by the standard IC or MIC fac-torization of… CONTINUE READING
