Report Typos and Errors


A matrix type providing direct solvers (LU and Cholesky) for distributed and sequential matrices via the external package MUMPS. Works with MATAIJ and MATSBAIJ matrices

Use ./configure --download-mumps --download-scalapack --download-parmetis --download-metis --download-ptscotch to have PETSc installed with MUMPS

Use -pc_type cholesky or lu -pc_factor_mat_solver_package mumps to us this direct solver
