Barrier ordering algorithm
Type: int
Default value: -1
Minimum value: -1
Maximum value: 1

Chooses the barrier sparse matrix fill-reducing algorithm. A value of 0 chooses Approximate Minimum Degree ordering, while a value of 1 chooses Nested Dissection ordering. The default value of -1 chooses automatically. You should only modify this parameter if you notice that the barrier ordering phase is consuming a significant fraction of the overall barrier runtime.

Note: Barrier only
