Lopsided PMHSS method for Complex Systems
Based on the preconditioned modified Hermitian and skew-Hermitian splitting (PMHSS) iteration method, we introduce a lopsided PMHSS (LPMHSS) iteration method for solving a broad class of complex symmetric linear systems. The convergence properties of the LPMHSS method are analyzed, which show that, under a loose restriction on parameter $\alpha$, the iterative sequence produced by LPMHSS method is convergent to the unique solution of the linear system for any initial guess. Furthermore, we derive an upper bound for the spectral radius of the LPMHSS iteration matrix, and the quasi-optimal parameter $\alpha$ which minimizes the above upper bound is also obtained. Both theoretical and numerical results indicate that the LPMHSS method outperforms the PMHSS method when the real part of the coefficient matrix is dominant. (Joint work with A.L. Yang and X. Li)
