DMCreateInterpolation

Gets interpolation matrix between two DMDA or DMComposite objects

Synopsis

#include "petscdm.h"     
PetscErrorCode  DMCreateInterpolation(DM dm1,DM dm2,Mat *mat,Vec *vec)
Collective on DM

Input Parameter

dm1 - the DM object
dm2 - the second, finer DM object

Output Parameter

mat - the interpolation
vec - the scaling (optional)

Notes: For DMDA objects this only works for "uniform refinement", that is the refined mesh was obtained DMRefine() or the coarse mesh was obtained by DMCoarsen(). The coordinates set into the DMDA are completely ignored in computing the interpolation.

For DMDA objects you can use this interpolation (more precisely the interpolation from the DMGetCoordinateDM()) to interpolate the mesh coordinate vectors EXCEPT in the periodic case where it does not make sense since the coordinate vectors are not periodic.
