No there isn't (maybe in the pdelab backend). 

Possibilities: write your own or use richardson with dampening factor

Sounds fishy to me. Are you sure that the problem is not on your end
(e.g. the linear system)? I would assume it worthwile to investigate
the cause for the nans a little more. At least you should run under
valgrind once.

BTW: Personally, I would appreciate it if you would post using your
real name.


Do you need more support with DUNE or HPC in general?
