naginterfaces.library.sparseig.real_symm_option(optstr, comm, io_manager=None)[source]

real_symm_option is an option setting function in a suite of functions consisting of real_symm_init(), real_symm_iter(), real_symm_proc(), real_symm_option and real_symm_monit(), and may be used to supply individual options to real_symm_iter() and real_symm_proc(). The initialization function real_symm_init() must have been called prior to calling real_symm_option.

Note: this function uses optional algorithmic parameters, see also: real_symm_iter(), real_symm_proc(), real_symm_init().

Parameters
optstrstr

A single valid option string (as described in Notes and Other Parameters).

commdict, communication object, modified in place

Communication structure.

This argument must have been initialized by a prior call to real_symm_init().

io_managerFileObjManager, optional

Manager for I/O in this routine.

Other Parameters
‘Advisory’int

Default

The destination for advisory messages.

‘Defaults’valueless

This special keyword may be used to reset all options to their default values.

‘Exact Shifts’valueless

Default

During the Lanczos iterative process, shifts are applied internally as part of the implicit restarting scheme. The shift strategy used by default and selected by the ‘Exact Shifts’ is strongly recommended over the alternative ‘Supplied Shifts’ (see Lehoucq et al. (1998) for details of shift strategies).

If ‘Exact Shifts’ are used then these are computed internally by the algorithm in the implicit restarting scheme.

If ‘Supplied Shifts’ are used then, during the Lanczos iterative process, you must supply shifts through array arguments of real_symm_iter() when real_symm_iter() returns with ; the real and imaginary parts of the shifts are returned in and respectively (or in when the option is set). This option should only be used if you are an experienced user since this requires some algorithmic knowledge and because more operations are usually required than for the implicit shift scheme. Details on the use of explicit shifts and further references on shift strategies are available in Lehoucq et al. (1998).

‘Iteration Limit’int

Default

The limit on the number of Lanczos iterations that can be performed before real_symm_iter() exits. If not all requested eigenvalues have converged to within ‘Tolerance’ and the number of Lanczos iterations has reached this limit then real_symm_iter() exits with an error; real_symm_proc() can still be called subsequently to return the number of converged eigenvalues, the converged eigenvalues and, if requested, the corresponding eigenvectors.

‘Largest Magnitude’valueless

Default

The Lanczos iterative method converges on a number of eigenvalues with given properties. The default is for real_symm_iter() to compute the eigenvalues of largest magnitude using ‘Largest Magnitude’. Alternatively, eigenvalues may be chosen which have ‘Largest Algebraic’ part, ‘Smallest Magnitude’, or ‘Smallest Algebraic’ part; or eigenvalues which are from ‘Both Ends’ of the algebraic spectrum.

Note that these options select the eigenvalue properties for eigenvalues of (and for ‘Generalized’ problems), the linear operator determined by the computational mode and problem type.

‘Both Ends’valueless

The Lanczos iterative method converges on a number of eigenvalues with given properties. The default is for real_symm_iter() to compute the eigenvalues of largest magnitude using ‘Largest Magnitude’. Alternatively, eigenvalues may be chosen which have ‘Largest Algebraic’ part, ‘Smallest Magnitude’, or ‘Smallest Algebraic’ part; or eigenvalues which are from ‘Both Ends’ of the algebraic spectrum.

‘Nolist’valueless

Default

Option ‘List’ enables printing of each option specification as it is supplied. ‘Nolist’ suppresses this printing.

‘List’valueless

Option ‘List’ enables printing of each option specification as it is supplied. ‘Nolist’ suppresses this printing.

‘Monitoring’int

Default

If , monitoring information is output to unit number (see unit_from_fileobj()) during the solution of each problem; this may be the same as the ‘Advisory’ unit number (see unit_from_fileobj()). The type of information produced is dependent on the value of ‘Print Level’, see the description of the option ‘Print Level’ for details of the information produced. Please see the FileObjManager method unit_from_fileobj() to associate a file with a given unit number (see unit_from_fileobj()).

‘Pointers’valueless

Default

During the iterative process and reverse communication calls to real_symm_iter(), required data can be communicated to and from real_symm_iter() in one of two ways. When is selected (the default) then the array arguments and are used to supply you with required data and used to return computed values back to real_symm_iter(). For example, when , real_symm_iter() returns the vector in and the matrix-vector product in and expects the result or the linear operation to be returned in .

If is selected then the data is passed through sections of the array argument . The section corresponding to when begins at a location given by the first element of ; similarly the section corresponding to begins at a location given by the second element of . This option allows real_symm_iter() to perform fewer copy operations on each intermediate exit and entry, but can also lead to less elegant code in the calling program.

‘Print Level’int

Default

This controls the amount of printing produced by real_symm_option as follows.

Output

Note that setting can result in very lengthy ‘Monitoring’ output.

‘Random Residual’valueless

Default

To begin the Lanczos iterative process, real_symm_iter() requires an initial residual vector. By default real_symm_iter() provides its own random initial residual vector; this option can also be set using option ‘Random Residual’. Alternatively, you can supply an initial residual vector (perhaps from a previous computation) to real_symm_iter() through the array argument ; this option can be set using option ‘Initial Residual’.

Notes

real_symm_option may be used to supply values for options to real_symm_iter() and real_symm_proc(). It is only necessary to call real_symm_option for those arguments whose values are to be different from their default values. One call to real_symm_option sets one argument value.

Each option is defined by a single character string consisting of one or more items. The items associated with a given option must be separated by spaces, or equals signs . Alphabetic characters may be upper or lower case. The string

Iteration Limit = 500

is an example of a string used to set an option. For each option the string contains one or more of the following items:

  • a mandatory keyword;

  • a phrase that qualifies the keyword;

  • a number that specifies an int or float value. Such numbers may be up to contiguous characters in Fortran’s I, F, E or D format.

real_symm_option does not have an equivalent function from the ARPACK package which passes options by directly setting values to scalar arguments or to specific elements of array arguments. real_symm_option is intended to make the passing of options more transparent and follows the same principle as the single option setting functions in submodule opt.

The setup function real_symm_init() must be called prior to the first call to real_symm_option and all calls to real_symm_option must precede the first call to real_symm_iter(), the reverse communication iterative solver.

A complete list of options, their abbreviations, synonyms and default values is given in Other Parameters.
