Welcome to the IFPACK Home

IFPACK provides a suite of object-oriented algebraic preconditioners for the solution of preconditioned iterative solvers. IFPACK constructors expect an Epetra_RowMatrix object for construction. IFPACK is part of the Trilinos Solver Project and IFPACK object interact well with other Trilinos classes. In particular, IFPACK can be used as a preconditioner for AztecOO.

IFPACK documentation is created and maintained using Doxygen; the latest Doxygen documentation, containing details about IFPACK and its classes, examples of usage, and more, is accessible here.
