 March 22, 2012, 11:46 The ICCG solver in the RIPPLE code #1 New Member   flyever Join Date: Mar 2012 Posts: 5 Rep Power: 7 Is anyone familiar with the RIPPLE code from Los Alamos National Laboratory? I have a question about the ICCG solver in it. In the comment lines, words like "periodic diagonals" and "periodic blocks" are mentioned. What do they mean? Thank you in advance! Zach

In particular, a Toeplitz matrix could be considered periodic with period 1. My best GUESS is that the diagonals in question are periodic, i.e. d(i) = d(i+p), and that the blocks are periodic Toeplitz matrices in the above sense. A few people will also call a tridiagonal matrix with a non-zero entries in the (1,n) and the (n,1) corner 'periodic', presumably because this is the sparsity pattern you get when discretizing, say, the one dimensional heat equation with periodic boundary conditions. /Carl Christian.

Regards Novan
