SAYLOR: Saylor's petroleum engineering/reservoir simulation matrices

from the Harwell-Boeing Collection

Source: Richard Kendall, Don Peaceman, Herb Stone, and Bill Watts, Exxon
Discipline: Oil reservoir modeling
Accession: Summer 1984

These matrices were provided to Paul Saylor to be used as test cases for Saylor's work with Richardson's iteration with dynamic parameters (see reference).

Saylor compared Richardson's iteration with dynamic parameter estimation and the strongly implicit procedure (SIP) on these problems. Richardson's iteration was more effective than SIP. In a private communication Saylor indicated that any preconditioned conjugate gradient style method would be more effective than SIP or Richardson's iteration. See reference for details.
