conjugate gradient convergence
hello! I implemented the CG algorithm (with no preconditionning) for test purposes, just to know how it works. i tried it with symetric but not definite positive matrices. it SEEMS to work well, althought it is established that it converges for symetric definite positive matrices (Only?). Since it's a quite old algorithm, i gess this fact was already noticed. So the question is: Why it's sayed that definite positivenes (i'm not sure for the speling :/) is necessary for CG to converge ?
