MGMRES
Restarted GMRES solver for sparse linear systems


MGMRES is a C library which applies the restarted Generalized Minimum Residual (GMRES) algorithm to solve a sparse linear system, using compressed row (CR) or sparse triplet (ST) format, by Lili Ju.

One matrix format used is the sparse triplet (ST) format, which simply stores NZ_NUM, the number of nonzeros, and stores the K-th nonzero matrix entry as

Another matrix format used is the compressed row (CR) format, which is similar to the sparse triplet format except that the vector of row indices is compressed to a vector of length N+1 which points to the beginning of the set of entries for each row.
