ISCreate

Creates an index set object.

Synopsis

#include "petscis.h"  
PetscErrorCode  ISCreate(MPI_Comm comm,IS *is)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

comm -the MPI communicator

Output Parameter

is -the new index set

Notes

When the communicator is not MPI_COMM_SELF, the operations on IS are NOT conceptually the same as MPI_Group operations. The IS are then distributed sets of indices and thus certain operations on them are collective.
