A note on a block preconditioner

Miron Tismenetsky
1991 Applied Mathematics Letters  
The well known block preconditioning technique is modified to suit certain ill-conditioned linear systems arising in reservoir modelling, semiconductor simulation and other fields of applications. Incorporated into the conjugate or biconjugate gradients algorithm, the proposed preconditioner gives a significant improvement in the condition number and the resulting convergence rate.
