This paper contains a convergence analysis of a flexible restarted FOM(k)(FFOM(k)), and its performance is compared with FGMRES(k). Performances of these two algorithms with variable preconditioners are also compared with those of preconditioned FOM(k) and GMRES(k). Numerical experiments show that FFOM(k) performs as well as, or better than for some problems, FGMRES(k).
