Detailed Description

Abstract interface class for Eigensolver strategies.

AbstractStrategy defines an abstract interface for eigensolver strategies. It is used by LOCA::Stepper to compute eigenvalues of the steady-state solution after each continuation step.

The interface currently defines one pure virtual method, computeEigenvalues(), to compute the eigenvalues. Derived classes should implement this method for a particular eigensolver strategy. Constructors for derived classes should be of the form:

 class Derived : public AbstractStrategy {
 public:
   Derived(
   const Teuchos::RefCountPtr<LOCA::GlobalData>& global_data,
   const Teuchos::RefCountPtr<LOCA::Parameter::SublistParser>& topParams,
     const Teuchos::RefCountPtr<NOX::Parameter::List>& eigenParams);
   ...
 };

where global_data is the LOCA global data object, topParams is the parsed top-level parameter list, and eigenParams is a parameter list of eigensolver parameters.

This class and its children follow the Strategy pattern as defined in Erich Gamma, et al. "Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software." Addison Wesley, Boston, MA, 1995.
