We focus on inverse preconditioners based on minimizing
is the preconditioned matrix and A
is symmetric and positive definite. We present and analyze gradient-type methods to minimize
on a suitable compact set. For this, we use the geometrical properties of the non-polyhedral cone of symmetric and positive definite matrices, and also the special properties of
on the feasible set. Preliminary and encouraging numerical results are also presented in which dense and sparse approximations are included.
