Iterative Methods

Stationary:

x(k+1)=Gx(k)+c

where G and c do not depend on iteration count (k)

Non Stationary:

x(k+1)=x(k)+akp(k)

where computation involves information that change at each iteration

Stationary: Jacobi Method

In the i-th equation solve for the value of xi while assuming the other entries of x remain fixed:

In matrix terms the method becomes:

where D, -L and -U represent the diagonal, the strictly lower-trg and strictly upper-trg parts of M

M=D-L-U

Stationary-Gause-Seidel

Like Jacobi, but now assume that previously computed results are used as soon as they are available:

In matrix terms the method becomes:

where D, -L and -U represent the diagonal, the strictly lower-trg and strictly upper-trg parts of M

M=D-L-U

Stationary: Successive Overrelaxation (SOR)

Devised by extrapolation applied to Gauss-Seidel in the form of weighted average:

In matrix terms the method becomes:

where D, -L and -U represent the diagonal, the strictly lower-trg and strictly upper-trg parts of M

SOR

- Choose w to accelerate the convergence
- W =1 : Jacobi / Gauss-Seidel
- 2>W>1: Over-Relaxation
- W < 1: Under-Relaxation

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Convergence of Stationary Method

- Linear Equation: MX=b
- A sufficient condition for convergence of the solution(GS,Jacob) is that the matrix M is diagonally dominant.
- If M is symmetric positive definite, SOR converges for any w (0<w<2)
- A necessary and sufficient condition for the convergence is the magnitude of the largest eigenvalue of the matrix G is smaller than 1
- Jacobi:
- Gauss-Seidel
- SOR:

- Which is also the direction of residue

Steepest Descent Method (2)

- How to choose step size ?
- Line Search

should minimize f, along the direction of , which means

Orthogonal

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Steepest Descent Algorithm

Given x0, iterate until residue is smaller than error tolerance

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Steepest Descent Method: example

- Starting at (-2,-2) take the
- direction of steepest descent of f
- b) Find the point on the intersec-
- tion of these two surfaces that
- minimize f
- c) Intersection of surfaces.

Orthogonal A-orthogonal

- Instead of orthogonal search direction, we make search direction A –orthogonal (conjugate)

Search Step Size

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Iteration finish in n steps

Initial error:

A-orthogonal

The error component at direction dj

is eliminated at step j. After n steps,

all errors are eliminated.

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Conjugate Search Direction

- How to construct A-orthogonal search directions, given a set of n linear independent vectors.
- Since the residue vector in steepest descent method is orthogonal, a good candidate to start with

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Construct Search Direction -1

- In Steepest Descent Method
- New residue is just a linear combination of previous residue and
- Let

We have

Krylov SubSpace: repeatedly applying a matrix to a vector

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Construct Search Direction -3

- can get next direction from the previous one, without saving them all.

let

Conjugate Gradient Algorithm

Given x0, iterate until residue is smaller than error tolerance

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Conjugate gradient: Convergence

- In exact arithmetic, CG converges in n steps (completely unrealistic!!)
- Accuracy after k steps of CG is related to:
- consider polynomials of degree k that are equal to 1 at 0.
- how small can such a polynomial be at all the eigenvalues of A?
- Thus, eigenvalues close together are good.
- Condition number:κ(A) = ||A||2 ||A-1||2 = λmax(A) / λmin(A)
- Residual is reduced by a constant factor by O(κ1/2(A)) iterations of CG.

Other Krylov subspace methods

- Nonsymmetric linear systems:
- GMRES: for i = 1, 2, 3, . . . find xi Ki (A, b) such that ri = (Axi– b) Ki (A, b)But, no short recurrence => save old vectors => lots more space (Usually “restarted” every k iterations to use less space.)
- BiCGStab, QMR, etc.:Two spaces Ki (A, b)and Ki (AT, b)w/ mutually orthogonal bases Short recurrences => O(n) space, but less robust
- Convergence and preconditioning more delicate than CG
- Active area of current research
- Eigenvalues: Lanczos (symmetric), Arnoldi (nonsymmetric)

Preconditioners

- Suppose you had a matrix B such that:
- condition number κ(B-1A) is small
- By = z is easy to solve
- Then you could solve (B-1A)x = B-1b instead of Ax = b
- B = A is great for (1), not for (2)
- B = I is great for (2), not for (1)
- Domain-specific approximations sometimes work
- B = diagonal of A sometimes works
- Better: blend in some direct-methods ideas. . .

Preconditioned conjugate gradient iteration

- One matrix-vector multiplication per iteration
- One solve with preconditioner per iteration

x0 = 0, r0 = b, d0 = B-1r0, y0 = B-1r0

for k = 1, 2, 3, . . .

αk = (yTk-1rk-1) / (dTk-1Adk-1) step length

xk = xk-1 + αk dk-1 approx solution

rk = rk-1 – αk Adk-1 residual

yk = B-1rk preconditioning solve

βk = (yTk rk) / (yTk-1rk-1) improvement

dk = yk + βk dk-1 search direction

Outline

- Iterative Method
- Stationary Iterative Method (SOR, GS,Jacob)
- Krylov Method (CG, GMRES)
- Multigrid Method

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

What is the multigrid

- A multilevel iterative method to solve
- Ax=b
- Originated in PDEs on geometric grids
- Expend the multigrid idea to unstructured problem – Algebraic MG
- Geometric multigrid for presenting the basic ideas of the multigrid method.

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Simple iterative method

- x(0) -> x(1) -> … -> x(k)
- Jacobi iteration
- Matrix form : x(k) = Rjx(k-1) + Cj
- General form: x(k) = Rx(k-1) + C (1)
- Stationary: x* = Rx* + C (2)

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Error and Convergence

Definition: errore = x* - x (3)

residualr = b – Ax (4)

e, r relation: Ae = r (5) ((3)+(4))

e(1) = x*-x(1) = Rx* + C – Rx(0)– C =Re(0)

Error equatione(k) = Rke(0) (6) ((1)+(2)+(3))

Convergence:

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

k= 4

k= 2

Error of diffenent frequency- Wavenumber k and frequency
- = k/n
- High frequency error is more oscillatory between points

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Iteration reduce low frequency error efficiently

- Smoothing iteration reduce high frequency error efficiently, but not low frequency error

Multigrid – a first glance- Two levels : coarse and fine grid

2h

A2hx2h=b2h

h

Ahxh=bh

Ax=b

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Idea 1: the V-cycle iteration

- Also called the nested iteration

Start with

2h

A2hx2h = b2h

A2hx2h = b2h

Iterate =>

Prolongation:

Restriction:

h

Ahxh = bh

Iterate to get

Question 1: Why we need the coarse grid ?

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Smoothing

- The basic iterations in each level

In ph: xphold xphnew

- Iteration reduces the error, makes the error smooth geometrically.

So the iteration is called smoothing.

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Why multilevel ?

- Coarse lever iteration is cheap.
- More than this…
- Coarse level smoothing reduces the error more efficiently than fine level in some way .
- Why ? ( Question 2 )

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Error restriction

- Map error to coarse grid will make the error more oscillatory

K = 4, =

K = 4, = /2

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Idea 2: Residual correction

- Known current solution x
- Solve Ax=b eq. to
- MG do NOT map x directly between levels

Map residual equation to coarse level

- Calculate rh
- b2h= Ih2h rh ( Restriction )
- eh =Ih2hx2h ( Prolongation )
- xh = xh + eh

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Why residual correction ?

- Error is smooth at fine level, but the actual solution may not be.
- Prolongation results in a smooth error in fine level, which is suppose to be a good evaluation of the fine level error.
- If the solution is not smooth in fine level, prolongation will introduce more high frequency error.

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Revised V-cycle with idea 2

- Smoothing on xh
- Calculate rh
- b2h= Ih2h rh
- Smoothing on x2h
- eh =Ih2hx2h
- Correct: xh = xh + eh

Three important ideas of MG

- Nested iteration
- Residual correction
- Elimination of error:

high frequency : fine grid

low frequency : coarse grid

AMG :for unstructured grids- Ax=b, no regular grid structure
- Fine grid defined from A

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Three questions for AMG

- How to choose coarse grid
- How to define the smoothness of errors
- How are interpolation and prolongation done

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

How to choose coarse grid

- Idea:
- C/F splitting
- As few coarse grid point as possible
- For each F-node, at least one of its neighbor is a C-node
- Choose node with strong coupling to other nodes as C-node

How to define the smoothness of error

- AMG fundamental concept:

Smooth error = small residuals

- ||r|| << ||e||

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

How are Prolongation and Restriction done

- Prolongation is based on smooth error and strong connections
- Common practice: I

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

AMG Prolongation (2)

Zhengyong (Simon) Zhu, UCSD

Summary

- Multigrid is a multilevel iterative method.
- Advantage: scalable
- If no geometrical grid is available, try Algebraic multigrid method
