In this paper, we consider a symmetric saddle point problem arising in the fluid dynamics. A special parameterized inexact Uzawa algorithm is proposed for solving the symmetric saddle point problem. The convergence of this special algorithm is considered. Sufficient conditions for the convergence are given. Numerical experiments resulting from stokes problem are presented to show the efficiency of the algorithm.
