Biconjugate gradient method could be summarized as follows

### System of equation

For the given system of equation
Ax = b ;
b = source vector
x = solution variable for which we seek the solution
A = coefficient matrix

M = the preconditioning matrix constructed by matrix A

### Algorithm

Allocate temperary vectors r,z,p,q, rtilde,ztilde,qtilde
Allocate temerary reals rho_1, rho_2 , alpha, beta

r := b - A $\cdot$x
rtilde := r

for i := 1 step 1 until max_itr do
solve (M $\cdot$z = r )
solve (MT $\cdot$ztilde = rtilde )
rho_1 := z $\cdot$rtilde
if i = 1 then
p := z
ptilde := ztilde
else
beta := (rho_1/rho_2)
p := z + beta * p
ptilde := ztilde + beta * ptilde
end if
q := A $\cdot$p
qtilde := AT $\cdot$ptilde
alpha := rho_1 / (ptilde $\cdot$q)
x := x + alpha * p
r := r - alpha * q
rtilde := rtilde - alpha * qtilde
rho_2 := rho_1
end (i-loop)

deallocate all temp memory
return TRUE
