MatMPIAIJSetPreallocationCSR

Allocates memory for a sparse parallel matrix in AIJ format (the default parallel PETSc format).

Synopsis

#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatMPIAIJSetPreallocationCSR(Mat B,const PetscInt i[],const PetscInt j[], const PetscScalar v[])
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

B - the matrix
i - the indices into j for the start of each local row (starts with zero)
j - the column indices for each local row (starts with zero)
v - optional values in the matrix

Notes

The i, j, and a arrays ARE copied by this routine into the internal format used by PETSc; thus you CANNOT change the matrix entries by changing the values of a[] after you have called this routine. Use MatCreateMPIAIJWithSplitArrays() to avoid needing to copy the arrays.

The i and j indices are 0 based, and i indices are indices corresponding to the local j array.

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 P0 ------- 4 5 6 P1

Process0 [P0]: rows_owned=[0,1] i = {0,1,3} [size = nrow+1 = 2+1] j = {0,0,2} [size = nz = 6] v = {1,2,3} [size = nz = 6]

Process1 [P1]: rows_owned=[2] i = {0,3} [size = nrow+1 = 1+1] j = {0,1,2} [size = nz = 6] v = {4,5,6} [size = nz = 6]

Keywords
