   You can use SNESSetConvergenceTest() to use whatever test you want to decide on convergence.

What I’m finding is that where |Q| is small, the numerical phase errors tend to be larger.  I suspect this is because it’s using the 2-norm for convergence in the SNES, so, where the solution is already, the phase errors are seen as small too.  Is there a way to use something more like an infinity norm with SNES, to get more point wise control?
