#include "petscksp.h" PetscErrorCode MatGetSchurComplement(Mat A,IS isrow0,IS iscol0,IS isrow1,IS iscol1,MatReuse mreuse,Mat *S,MatSchurComplementAinvType ainvtype,MatReuse preuse,Mat *Sp)Collective on Mat

A | - matrix in which the complement is to be taken | |

isrow0 | - rows to eliminate | |

iscol0 | - columns to eliminate, (isrow0,iscol0) should be square and nonsingular | |

isrow1 | - rows in which the Schur complement is formed | |

iscol1 | - columns in which the Schur complement is formed | |

mreuse | - MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX or MAT_REUSE_MATRIX, use MAT_IGNORE_MATRIX to put nothing in S | |

ainvtype | - the type of approximation used for the inverse of the (0,0) block used in forming Sp: MAT_SCHUR_COMPLEMENT_AINV_DIAG or MAT_SCHUR_COMPLEMENT_AINV_LUMP | |

preuse | - MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX or MAT_REUSE_MATRIX, use MAT_IGNORE_MATRIX to put nothing in Sp |

S | - exact Schur complement, often of type MATSCHURCOMPLEMENT which is difficult to use for preconditioning | |

Sp | - approximate Schur complement from which a preconditioner can be built |

Sometimes users would like to provide problem-specific data in the Schur complement, usually only for special row and column index sets. In that case, the user should call PetscObjectComposeFunction() on the *S matrix and pass mreuse of MAT_REUSE_MATRIX to set "MatGetSchurComplement_C" to their function. If their function needs to fall back to the default implementation, it should call MatGetSchurComplement_Basic().

MatCreateSchurComplement() takes as arguments the four submatrices and returns the virtual Schur complement (what this returns in S).

MatSchurComplementGetPmat() takes the virtual Schur complement and returns an explicit approximate Schur complement (what this returns in Sp).

In other words calling MatCreateSchurComplement() followed by MatSchurComplementGetPmat() produces the same output as this function but with slightly different inputs. The actually submatrices of the original block matrix instead of index sets to the submatrices.

Developer Notes: The API that includes MatGetSchurComplement(), MatCreateSchurComplement(), MatSchurComplementGetPmat() should be refactored to remove redundancy and be clearer and simplier.
