Algebraic Multigrid

Does anyone know where I can find more detailed information about Algebraic Multigrid acceleration used in CFX solver?

The main things I would like to know:
1. What kind of coarsening-refinement cycle is used; V-,W-,F, FMG, other?
2. What is so called Additive Corection?

Have you read the documentation and chased up the references from the theory section? This describes the linear solver.

I've study the documentation very precisely but there is nothing about which coarsening-refinement cycle is used in CFX. I also don't think that I can find this information in references.

As for Additive Corrections, I have found some satisfactory informations.

I'm fairly sure it's the W cycle, but I can't recall where I heard that.

Thaks for reply.
