International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, 19, 1593–1619. 1 Introduction: Minimum Principles and Krylov Methods There are two main approaches to solving systems of equations resulting from numerical discretization of solid mechanics problems, direct and iterative. There are a large number of variants of each. Direct solvers are usually employed when the number of unknowns is not very large, and there are multiple load vectors. Basically, one can operate on the multiple right-hand sides simultaneously via Gaussian elimination.

However band solvers, which exploit the bandedness of the stiffness matrix, can reduce the number of operation counts to N b2 , where b is the bandwidth. Many schemes exist for the optimal ordering of nodes in order to make the bandwidth as small as possible. Skyline solvers locate the uppermost nonzero elements starting from the diagonal and concentrate only on elements below the skyline. Frontal methods, which are analogous to a moving front in the finite element mesh, perform Gaussian elimination element by element, before the element is incorporated into the global stiffness matrix.

2 The Conjugate Gradient Method In the Conjugate Gradient Method, at each iteration the computational cost is O(N ).
