class firedrake.slate.static_condensation.hybridization.SchurComplementBuilder(prefix, Atilde, K, pc, vidx, pidx)[source]

Bases: object

A Slate-based Schur complement expression builder. The expression is used in the trace system solve and parts of it in the reconstruction calls of the other two variables of the hybridised system. How the Schur complement if constructed, and in particular how the local inverse of the mixed matrix is built, is controlled with PETSc options. All corresponding PETSc options start with hybridization_localsolve. The following option sets are valid together with the usual set of hybridisation options:

{'localsolve': {'ksp_type': 'preonly',
                'pc_type': 'fieldsplit',
                'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'schur'}}

A Schur complement is requested for the mixed matrix inverse which appears inside the Schur complement of the trace system solve. The Schur complements are then nested. For details see defition of build_schur(). No fieldsplit options are set so all local inverses are calculated explicitly.

'localsolve': {'ksp_type': 'preonly',
               'pc_type': 'fieldsplit',
               'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'schur',
               'fieldsplit_1': {'ksp_type': 'default',
                                'pc_type': 'python',
                                'pc_python_type': __name__ + '.DGLaplacian'}}

The inverse of the Schur complement inside the Schur decomposition of the mixed matrix inverse is approximated by a default solver (LU in the matrix-explicit case) which is preconditioned by a user-defined operator, e.g. a DG Laplacian, see build_inner_S_inv(). So \(P_S * S * x = P_S * b\).

'localsolve': {'ksp_type': 'preonly',
                'pc_type': 'fieldsplit',
                'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'schur',
                'fieldsplit_1': {'ksp_type': 'default',
                                'pc_type': 'python',
                                'pc_python_type': __name__ + '.DGLaplacian',
                                'aux_ksp_type': 'preonly'}
                                'aux_pc_type': 'jacobi'}}}}

The inverse of the Schur complement inside the Schur decomposition of the mixed matrix inverse is approximated by a default solver (LU in the matrix-explicit case) which is preconditioned by a user-defined operator, e.g. a DG Laplacian. The inverse of the preconditioning matrix is approximated through the inverse of only the diagonal of the provided operator, see build_Sapprox_inv(). So \(diag(P_S).inv * S * x = diag(P_S).inv * b\).

'localsolve': {'ksp_type': 'preonly',
               'pc_type': 'fieldsplit',
               'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'schur',
               'fieldsplit_0': {'ksp_type': 'default',
                                'pc_type': 'jacobi'}

The inverse of the \(A_{00}\) block of the mixed matrix is approximated by a default solver (LU in the matrix-explicit case) which is preconditioned by the diagonal matrix of \(A_{00}, see :meth:\). So \(diag(A_{00}).inv * A_{00} * x = diag(A_{00}).inv * b\).

'localsolve': {'ksp_type': 'preonly',
               'pc_type': 'fieldsplit',
               'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'None',
               'fieldsplit_0':  ...
               'fieldsplit_1':  ...

All the options for fieldsplit_ are still valid if 'pc_fieldsplit_type': 'None'. In this case the mixed matrix inverse which appears inside the Schur complement of the trace system solve is calculated explicitly, but the local inverses of \(A_{00}\) and the Schur complement in the reconstructions calls are still treated according to the options in fieldsplit_.

build_A00_inv()[source]

Calculates the inverse of \(A_{00}\), the (0,0)-block of the mixed matrix Atilde. The inverse is potentially approximated through a solve which is potentially preconditioned with jacobi.

build_Sapprox_inv()[source]

Calculates the inverse of preconditioner to the Schur complement, which can be either the schur complement approximation provided by the user or jacobi. The inverse is potentially approximated through a solve which is potentially preconditioned with jacobi.

build_inner_S()[source]

Build the inner Schur complement.

build_inner_S_inv()[source]

Calculates the inverse of the schur complement. The inverse is potentially approximated through a solve which is potentially preconditioned with the preconditioner P.

build_schur(rhs)[source]

The Schur complement in the operators of the trace solve contains the inverse on a mixed system. Users may want this inverse to be treated with another Schur complement.

Let the mixed matrix Atilde be called A here. Then, if a nested schur complement is requested, the inverse of Atilde is rewritten with help of a a Schur decomposition as follows.

A.inv = [[I, -A00.inv * A01]    *   [[A00.inv, 0    ]   *   [[I,             0]
        [0,  I             ]]       [0,        S.inv]]      [-A10* A00.inv,  I]]
        --------------------        -----------------       -------------------
        block1                      block2                  block3
with the (inner) schur complement S = A11 - A10 * A00.inv * A01
inv(A, P, prec, preonly=False)[source]

Calculates the inverse of an operator A. The inverse is potentially approximated through a solve which is potentially preconditioned with the preconditioner P if prec is True. The inverse of A may be just approximated with the inverse of P if prec and replace.

retrieve_user_S_approx(pc, usercode)[source]

Retrieve a user-defined :class:firedrake.preconditioners.AuxiliaryOperator from the PETSc Options, which is an approximation to the Schur complement and its inverse is used to precondition the local solve in the reconstruction calls (e.g.).
