Math. 180, 471-476 (1994).
Three types of domain-decomposed preconditioners are employed to accelerate, with right preconditioning, the convergence of several competitive non-symmetric linear iterative solvers. The resulting algorithms are parallelized at both the subroutine level to accommodate the subdomain by subdomain computation and at the loop level to exploit the parallelism of the finite element discretization. The implementations were carried out on the parallel vector supercomputer CRAY Y-MP/432.
