No, Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix does not work in parallel.

If your system is not too large, you could consider using the Amesos package.  Amesos contains sparse direct solvers that can be very effective with ill-conditioned problems.

Hello everyone,
Can Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix <https://trilinos.org/docs/dev/packages/epetra/doc/html/classEpetra__SerialDenseMatrix.html> be used in a parallel setting? I am trying to solve a large, sparse, ill-conditioned linear system using Epetra_CrsMatrix but it does not converge as it is too ill-conditioned for even the MultiLevel ML-class Preconditioners. I found suggestions online about using Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix<https://trilinos.org/docs/dev/packages/epetra/doc/html/classEpetra__SerialDenseMatrix.html> instead for ill-conditioned systems.

Thank you,

Nishant Narechania
