DMGetGlobalVector

Gets a MPI PETSc vector that may be used with the DMXXX routines.

Synopsis

#include "petscdm.h" 
PetscErrorCode  DMGetGlobalVector(DM dm,Vec *g)
Collective on DM

Input Parameter

dm -the distributed array

Output Parameter

g -the global vector

Note

The vector values are NOT initialized and may have garbage in them, so you may need to zero them.

The output parameter, g, is a regular PETSc vector that should be returned with DMRestoreGlobalVector() DO NOT call VecDestroy() on it.

VecStride*() operations can be useful when using DM with dof > 1

Keywords

distributed array, create, Global, vector
