KSPCreateVecs

Gets a number of work vectors.

Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h" 
PetscErrorCode KSPCreateVecs(KSP ksp,PetscInt rightn, Vec **right,PetscInt leftn,Vec **left)

Input Parameters

ksp - iterative context
rightn - number of right work vectors
leftn - number of left work vectors to allocate

Output Parameter

right - the array of vectors created
left - the array of left vectors

Note: The right vector has as many elements as the matrix has columns. The left vector has as many elements as the matrix has rows.

The vectors are new vectors that are not owned by the KSP, they should be destroyed with calls to VecDestroyVecs() when no longer needed.

Developers Note: First tries to duplicate the rhs and solution vectors of the KSP, if they do not exist tries to get them from the matrix, if that does not exist tries to get them from the DM (if it is provided).
