There are several iterative solvers for the arising linear systems. The interface is basically a pointer to an Operator<I,DIM> and it's Apply() member function which performs the matrix vector multiply. The preconditioner is also a member function of the operator. For the common elliptic linear systems and high order Interpolet based discretizations a simple diagonal scaling (Jacobi-preconditioner) does a good job, see [6].

Up to now there are BiCGStab2 and BiCGstab schemes implemented. All these solvers are member functions of Solver<I,DIM>. See the Programming References for details. An example for the usage of the solvers is in the source code to section 9.5.
