Hi,
I have some questions regarding the use of hypre/boomeramg:
1. Is there anything I need to change in the assembly of matrix etc besides
adding -pc_type hypre -pc_hypre_type boomeramg ?
2. Can it work in a sequential code?
3. I have 2 eqns to solve - momentum and poisson. if I used the options,
will both equations be solved using hypre? Can I select which solver to
solve with which equation?
Thank you.
