MatSchurComplementGetAinvType

get the type of approximation for the inverse of the (0,0) block used in forming Sp in MatSchurComplementGetPmat()

Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatSchurComplementGetAinvType(Mat S,MatSchurComplementAinvType *ainvtype)
Not collective.

Input Parameter

S -matrix obtained with MatCreateSchurComplement() (or equivalent) and implementing the action of A11 - A10 ksp(A00,Ap00) A01

Output Parameter

ainvtype -type of approximation used to form A00inv from A00 when assembling Sp = A11 - A10 A00inv A01:
                     MAT_SCHUR_COMPLEMENT_AINV_DIAG or MAT_SCHUR_COMPLEMENT_AINV_LUMP

Note

Since the real Schur complement is usually dense, providing a good approximation to newpmat usually requires application-specific information. The default for assembled matrices is to use the inverse of the diagonal of the (0,0) block A00 in place of A00^{-1}. This rarely produce a scalable algorithm. Optionally, A00 can be lumped before forming inv(diag(A00)).
