Numerical experiments with algebraic multilevel preconditioners

Gérard Meurant


This paper numerically compares different algebraic multilevel preconditioners to solve symmetric positive definite linear systems with the preconditioned conjugate gradient algorithm on a set of examples arising mainly from discretization of second order partial differential equations. We compare several different smoothers, influence matrices and interpolation schemes.
