MatCreateLMVMDiagBrdn
DiagBrdn creates a symmetric Broydentype diagonal matrix used for approximating Hessians. It consists of a convex combination of DFP and BFGS diagonal approximation schemes, such that DiagBrdn = (1theta)*BFGS + theta*DFP. To preserve symmetric positivedefiniteness, we restrict theta to be in [0, 1]. We also ensure positive definiteness by taking the VecAbs() of the final vector.
Synopsis
#include "petscksp.h"
PetscErrorCode MatCreateLMVMDiagBrdn(MPI_Comm comm, PetscInt n, PetscInt N, Mat *B)
There are two ways of approximating the diagonal: using the forward (B) update
schemes for BFGS and DFP and then taking the inverse, or directly working with
the inverse (H) update schemes for the BFGS and DFP updates, derived using the
ShermanMorrisonWoodbury formula. We have implemented both, controlled by a
parameter below.
In order to use the DiagBrdn matrix with other vector types, i.e. doing MatMults
and MatSolves, the matrix must first be created using MatCreate() and MatSetType(),
followed by MatLMVMAllocate(). Then it will be available for updating
(via MatLMVMUpdate) in one's favored solver implementation.
This allows for MPI compatibility.

Input Parameters
 comm   MPI communicator, set to PETSC_COMM_SELF

 n   number of local rows for storage vectors

 N   global size of the storage vectors

Output Parameter
B the matrix
It is recommended that one use the MatCreate(), MatSetType() and/or MatSetFromOptions()
paradigm instead of this routine directly.
