MatMatMult

Performs Matrix-Matrix Multiplication C=A*B.

Synopsis

#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatMatMult(Mat A,Mat B,MatReuse scall,PetscReal fill,Mat *C)
Neighbor-wise Collective on Mat

Input Parameters

A - the left matrix
B - the right matrix
scall - either MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX or MAT_REUSE_MATRIX
fill - expected fill as ratio of nnz(C)/(nnz(A) + nnz(B)), use PETSC_DEFAULT if you do not have a good estimate if the result is a dense matrix this is irrelevent

Output Parameters

C -the product matrix

Notes

Unless scall is MAT_REUSE_MATRIX C will be created.

MAT_REUSE_MATRIX can only be used if the matrices A and B have the same nonzero pattern as in the previous call

To determine the correct fill value, run with -info and search for the string "Fill ratio" to see the value actually needed.

If you have many matrices with the same non-zero structure to multiply, you should either

  1) use MAT_REUSE_MATRIX in all calls but the first or
  2) call MatMatMultSymbolic() once and then MatMatMultNumeric() for each product needed
