References for Multi-Level Block ILU Preconditioning Techniques



Here are some references related to multi-level preconditioning techniques. Most of them are related to the hierarchical basis multi-level in finite element analysis, recursive red-black factorization in finite difference analysis, multigrid methods with matrix-dependent transfer operators, algebraic multigrid methods, and blackbox multigrid methods. In other words, only a few of them can be used to solve general sparse linear systems. If you have other relevant references that are not listed here, please send me an e-mail message (jzhang@cs.uky.edu).
