Parallel Iterative Methods (PIM)

  Parallel Iterative Methods (PIM) The sole focus of this package is on iterative methods. PIM let's the user supply external routines for the matrix-vector product, preconditioner application, and norms and inner products. This makes the package largely independent of data structures and communication protocols, in fact of whether the program is running in parallel or not. It also puts a considerable burden on the user.
