Creates a sparse matrix in SELL format.


#include "petscmat.h"  
PetscErrorCode MatCreateSeqSELL(MPI_Comm comm,PetscInt m,PetscInt n,PetscInt maxallocrow,const PetscInt rlen[],Mat *A)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

+ comm - MPI communicator, set to PETSC_COMM_SELF . m - number of rows . n - number of columns . rlenmax - maximum number of nonzeros in a row - rlen - array containing the number of nonzeros in the various rows (possibly different for each row) or NULL

Output Parameter

. A - the matrix

It is recommended that one use the MatCreate(), MatSetType() and/or MatSetFromOptions(), MatXXXXSetPreallocation() paradgm instead of this routine directly. [MatXXXXSetPreallocation() is, for example, MatSeqSELLSetPreallocation]


If nnz is given then nz is ignored

Specify the preallocated storage with either rlenmax or rlen (not both). Set rlenmax=PETSC_DEFAULT and rlen=NULL for PETSc to control dynamic memory allocation. For large problems you MUST preallocate memory or you will get TERRIBLE performance, see the users' manual chapter on matrices.
