Hi All

I am using PARDISO to solve a system of KX=F (K: real symmetric definite matrix).

I have these two cases: K1 and K2 (both matrices are given below). PARDISO returns a success for K1 and it gives an error for K2 (instability in the system).

In fact, both K1 and K2 are not well-conditioned matrices (i.e., they are ill-conditioned) but interestingly the PARDISO returns success for K1. The condition numbers I calculated are something like 10^16 for K1 and 10^17 for K2.

Is there a way to avoid this kind of problems? Any way to set some parameters for PARDISO that catches this? We have other (in-house) solvers that catches this, and I am suprised that PARDISO fails to detect it !..

Regards

Bulent

P.S. My system configuration: Windows7, 64bit, VS2010 C++

Something is inconsistent in the story, or I have made a mistake. Would you please post the code that uses Pardiso on these matrices?

Anyway, below is my code that uses PARDISO.

*= 1. Both examples ran to completion with no error messages.*

I repeated the runs with the Pardiso 4.1.2 (not from Intel) and again both examples ran without errors.

Thanks for having time to look into this. I am a bit suprised with your results. When I run these matrices in my code with MKL-PARDISO, I am getting success for K1 and failure for K2. In fact, I was expecting no success for K1 too.

These matrices are from a finite element model that is intentionally unstable and hence, it was expected that PARDISO should have reported numerical instability for both K1 and K2.

I just run the matrix "K1" in Mathematica (i.e., taking inverse of K1). It returns some results but it also indicates that "Inverse::luc: Result for Inverse of badly conditioned matrix", which was expected (see the log below)

Please note that I am using matrix type "2" for PARDISO solution (i.e., real symmetric definite matrix).
