Linear problem Ax=b is considered where x is unknown and where A is
a block-tridiagonal N-dimensional matrix with all of its
off-diagonal submatrices equal to the same negative unit matrix and
with the same diagonal submatrix element C only replaced by the unit
submatrix in the upper and lower corner of A. A two-step algorithm
is proposed for the numerical solution of the system reducing the
procedure to the usual conjugate-gradient method.
