Report Typos and Errors


Creates an sequential AIJ matrix using matrix elements (in CSR format) provided by the user.


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatCreateSeqAIJWithArrays(MPI_Comm comm,PetscInt m,PetscInt n,PetscInt *i,PetscInt *j,PetscScalar *a,Mat *mat)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

comm - must be an MPI communicator of size 1
m - number of rows
n - number of columns
i - row indices
j - column indices
a - matrix values

Output Parameter

mat -the matrix


The i, j, and a arrays are not copied by this routine, the user must free these arrays once the matrix is destroyed and not before

You cannot set new nonzero locations into this matrix, that will generate an error.

The i and j indices are 0 based

The format which is used for the sparse matrix input, is equivalent to a row-major ordering.. i.e for the following matrix, the input data expected is as shown

       1 0 0
       2 0 3
       4 5 6

       i =  {0,1,3,6}  [size = nrow+1  = 3+1]
       j =  {0,0,2,0,1,2}  [size = 6]; values must be sorted for each row
       v =  {1,2,3,4,5,6}  [size = 6]
