ABSTRACT: We introduce a novel strategy, absolute value preconditioning, for constructing symmetric positive definite (SPD preconditioners for linear systems with symmetric indefinite matrices. We consider a model problem with a shifted discrete negative Laplacian, and suggest a geometric multigrid (MG) preconditioner, where the inverse of the matrix absolute value appears only on the coarse grid, while operations on finer grids are based on the Laplacian. Our numerical tests demonstrate practical effectiveness of the new preconditioner.
