KSPBuildSolution

Builds the approximate solution in a vector provided. This routine is NOT commonly needed (see KSPSolve()).

Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode  KSPBuildSolution(KSP ksp,Vec v,Vec *V)
Collective on KSP

Input Parameter

ctx -iterative context obtained from KSPCreate()

Output Parameter

Provide exactly one of
v - location to stash solution.
V - the solution is returned in this location. This vector is created internally. This vector should NOT be destroyed by the user with VecDestroy().

Notes

This routine can be used in one of two ways
      KSPBuildSolution(ksp,NULL,&V);
   or
      KSPBuildSolution(ksp,v,NULL); or KSPBuildSolution(ksp,v,&v);
In the first case an internal vector is allocated to store the solution (the user cannot destroy this vector). In the second case the solution is generated in the vector that the user provides. Note that for certain methods, such as KSPCG, the second case requires a copy of the solution, while in the first case the call is essentially free since it simply returns the vector where the solution already is stored. For some methods like GMRES this is a reasonably expensive operation and should only be used in truly needed.
