Standard Krylov subspace methods only allow the user to choose a single preconditioner, although in many situations there may be a number of possibilities. Here we describe an extension of GMRES, multi-preconditioned GMRES, which allows the use of more than one preconditioner. We give some theoretical results, propose a practical algorithm, and present numerical results from problems in domain decomposition and PDE-constrained optimization. These numerical experiments illustrate the applicability and potential of the multi-preconditioned approach.
