public abstract class IterativeLinearSolver
extends Object

This abstract class defines an iterative solver for the linear system A · x = b. In what follows, the residual r is defined as r = b - A · x, where A is the linear operator of the linear system, b is the right-hand side vector, and x the current estimate of the solution.
