Gets a logical reference to a local submatrix, for use in assembly


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatCreateLocalRef(Mat A,IS isrow,IS iscol,Mat *newmat)
Not Collective

Input Arguments

A - Full matrix, generally parallel
isrow - Local index set for the rows
iscol - Local index set for the columns

Output Arguments

newmat -New serial Mat


Most will use MatGetLocalSubMatrix() which returns a real matrix corresponding to the local block if it available, such as with matrix formats that store these blocks separately.

The new matrix forwards MatSetValuesLocal() and MatSetValuesBlockedLocal() to the global system. In general, it does not define MatMult() or any other functions. Local submatrices can be nested.
