PCFieldSplitSetFields

Sets the fields for one particular split in the field split preconditioner

Synopsis

#include "petscpc.h" 
PetscErrorCode  PCFieldSplitSetFields(PC pc,const char splitname[],PetscInt n,const PetscInt *fields,const PetscInt *fields_col)
Logically Collective on PC

Input Parameters

pc - the preconditioner context
splitname - name of this split, if NULL the number of the split is used
n - the number of fields in this split
fields - the fields in this split

Notes: Use PCFieldSplitSetIS() to set a completely general set of indices as a field.

The PCFieldSplitSetFields() is for defining fields as strided blocks. For example, if the block size is three then one can define a field as 0, or 1 or 2 or 0,1 or 0,2 or 1,2 which mean 0xx3xx6xx9xx12 ... x1xx4xx7xx ... xx2xx5xx8xx.. 01x34x67x... 0x1x3x5x7.. x12x45x78x.... where the numbered entries indicate what is in the field.

This function is called once per split (it creates a new split each time). Solve options for this split will be available under the prefix -fieldsplit_SPLITNAME_.

Developer Note: This routine does not actually create the IS representing the split, that is delayed until PCSetUp_FieldSplit(), because information about the vector/matrix layouts may not be available when this routine is called.
