f11dcc solves a real sparse nonsymmetric system of linear equations, represented in coordinate storage format, using a restarted generalized minimal residual (RGMRES), conjugate gradient squared (CGS), or stabilized bi-conjugate gradient (Bi-CGSTAB) method, with incomplete preconditioning.
f11dcc uses the incomplete factorization determined by f11dac as the preconditioning matrix. A call to f11dcc must always be preceded by a call to f11dac. Alternative preconditioners for the same storage scheme are available by calling f11dec.
The matrix , and the preconditioning matrix , are represented in coordinate storage (CS) format (see the F11 Chapter Introduction) in the arrays a, irow and icol, as returned from f11dac. The array a holds the nonzero entries in these matrices, while irow and icol hold the corresponding row and column indices.

6Error Indicators and Warnings
On entry, while . These arguments must satisfy .
The required accuracy could not be obtained. However, a reasonable accuracy has been obtained and further iterations cannot improve the result.
You should check the output value of rnorm for acceptability. This error code usually implies that your problem has been fully and satisfactorily solved to within, or close to, the accuracy available on your system. Further iterations are unlikely to improve on this situation.
Algorithmic breakdown. A solution is returned, although it is possible that it is completely inaccurate.
On entry, the CS representation of is invalid. Check that the call to f11dcc has been preceded by a valid call to f11dac, and that the arrays a, irow and icol have not been corrupted between the two calls.
On entry, the CS representation of the preconditioning matrix M is invalid. Check that the call to f11dcc has been preceded by a valid call to f11dac, and that the arrays a, irow, icol, ipivp, ipivq, istr and idiag have not been corrupted between the two calls.
The required accuracy has not been obtained in maxitn iterations.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f11dcc is not threaded in any implementation.
The time taken by f11dcc for each iteration is roughly proportional to the value of nnzc returned from the preceding call to f11dac.
The number of iterations required to achieve a prescribed accuracy cannot be easily determined a priori, as it can depend dramatically on the conditioning and spectrum of the preconditioned coefficient matrix, .
Some illustrations of the application of f11dcc to linear systems arising from the discretization of two-dimensional elliptic partial differential equations, and to random-valued randomly structured linear systems, can be found in Salvini and Shaw (1996).
