Computes the real part of the vector dot product.


#include "petscvec.h"   
PetscErrorCode  VecDotRealPart(Vec x,Vec y,PetscReal *val)
Collective on Vec

Input Parameters

x, y -the vectors

Output Parameter

val -the real part of the dot product;

Performance Issues

   per-processor memory bandwidth
   interprocessor latency
   work load inbalance that causes certain processes to arrive much earlier than others

Notes for Users of Complex Numbers

See VecDot() for more details on the definition of the dot product for complex numbers

For real numbers this returns the same value as VecDot()

For complex numbers in C^n (that is a vector of n components with a complex number for each component) this is equal to the usual real dot product on the the space R^{2n} (that is a vector of 2n components with the real or imaginary part of the complex numbers for components)

Developer Note: This is not currently optimized to compute only the real part of the dot product.
