#### Abstract

We present a preconditioned mixed-type splitting iterative method for solving the linear system , where is a Z-matrix. And we give some comparison theorems to show that the rate of convergence of the preconditioned mixed-type splitting iterative method is faster than that of the mixed-type splitting iterative method. Finally, we give one numerical example to illustrate our results.

#### 1. Introduction

For solving linear system, where is an square matrix and and are -dimensional vectors, the basic iterative method is where and is nonsingular. Thus, (2) can be written as where and .

Assuming that has unit diagonal entries, let , where is the identity matrix and and are strictly lower and strictly upper triangular parts of , respectively.

Transform the original system (1) into the preconditioned form as follows:

Then, we can define the basic iterative scheme as follows: where and is nonsingular. Thus, the equation above can also be written as where and .

In paper [1], Cheng et al. presented the mixed-type splitting iterative method as follows: with the following iterative matrix: where is an auxiliary nonnegative diagonal matrix, is an auxiliary strictly lower triangular matrix, and .

In this paper, we will establish the preconditioned mixed-type splitting iterative method with the preconditioners , , and for solving linear systems. And we obtain some comparison results which show that the rate of convergence of the preconditioned mixed-type splitting iterative method with is faster than that of the preconditioned mixed-type splitting iterative method with or . Finally, we give one numerical example to illustrate our results.
