Preconditioning is used to improve the convergence speed of Poisson solver. In some situations (bad quality mesh e.g.) the Cholesky matrix decomposition used for that, fails. You don't have to worry too much if that happens, the only consequence is on the computation time. Jean-François

Hello,

I am having the same problem (at each time step) and I can't understand why this happens. Can anyone explain what is the cause of it?

Thanks

Nuno

Thank you for the reply but I have it _each time step_

Regards, Gennady

You can neglect it if it does not show up again (usually it happens only the first time because of a bad definition of convergence criterion at first solver call, when it starts from 0 values) JF

Howdy,

when I slightly changed a size of a geometry, SPIS solver complains each time step

WARNING : Error in Cholesky DECOMPOSITION of preconditionnig ) = 5413

This is a warning or error? Can I neglect it?

Thank you. Regards, Gennady
