MatCholeskyFactor

Performs in-place Cholesky factorization of a symmetric matrix.

Synopsis

#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatCholeskyFactor(Mat mat,IS perm,const MatFactorInfo *info)
Collective on Mat

Input Parameters

mat - the matrix
perm - row and column permutations
f - expected fill as ratio of original fill

Notes

See MatLUFactor() for the nonsymmetric case. See also MatCholeskyFactorSymbolic(), and MatCholeskyFactorNumeric().

Most users should employ the simplified KSP interface for linear solvers instead of working directly with matrix algebra routines such as this. See, e.g., KSPCreate().

Developer Note: fortran interface is not autogenerated as the f90 interface defintion cannot be generated correctly [due to MatFactorInfo]
