Abstract:Accurate initial guesses to the solution can dramatically speed convergence of iterative solvers. In the case of successive right hand sides, it has been shown that accurate initial solutions may be obtained by projecting the newest right hand side vector onto a column space of recent prior solutions. We propose a technique to efficiently update the column space of prior solutions. We find this technique can modestly improve solver performance, though its potential is likely limited by the problem step size and the accuracy of the solver.
