Abstract : Efficient solution of the linear simultaneous equations arising from thin wire moments problems by a banded matrix iterative technique has been demonstrated for a variety of small problems in previous reports. This report includes studies of stability of the equations, computation of residual errors in the iterative method, statistics on performance of a new convergence measure, prediction of efficiencies during the iteration, possibilities for control logic for the iteration with checkpoint/restart capabilities, and an attempt to accelerate convergence.
