MatStencil

Data structure (C struct) for storing information about a single row or column of a matrix as indexed on an associated grid. These are arguments to MatSetStencil() and MatSetBlockStencil()

Synopsis

typedef struct {
  PetscInt k,j,i,c;
} MatStencil;
The i,j, and k represent the logical coordinates over the entire grid (for 2 and 1 dimensional problems the k and j entries are ignored). The c represents the the degrees of freedom at each grid point (the dof argument to DMDASetDOF()). If dof is 1 then this entry is ignored.

For stencil access to vectors see DMDAVecGetArray(), DMDAVecGetArrayF90().

Fortran usage is different, see MatSetValuesStencil() for details.
