Based on the relaxed factorization techniques studied recently and the idea of the simple-like preconditioner, a modified relaxed positive-semidefinite and skew-Hermitian splitting (MRPSS) preconditioner is proposed for generalized saddle point problems. Some properties, including the eigenvalue distribution, the eigenvector distribution and the minimal polynomial of the preconditioned matrix are studied. Numerical examples arising from the mixed finite element discretization of the Oseen equation are illustrated to show the efficiency of the new preconditioner.
