#include "petscmat.h" PetscErrorCode MatSetSizes(Mat A, PetscInt m, PetscInt n, PetscInt M, PetscInt N)Collective on Mat
|A||- the matrix|
|m||- number of local rows (or PETSC_DECIDE)|
|n||- number of local columns (or PETSC_DECIDE)|
|M||- number of global rows (or PETSC_DETERMINE)|
|N||- number of global columns (or PETSC_DETERMINE)|
If PETSC_DECIDE is not used for the arguments 'm' and 'n', then the user must ensure that they are chosen to be compatible with the vectors. To do this, one first considers the matrix-vector product 'y = A x'. The 'm' that is used in the above routine must match the local size used in the vector creation routine VecCreateMPI() for 'y'. Likewise, the 'n' used must match that used as the local size in VecCreateMPI() for 'x'.
You cannot change the sizes once they have been set.
The sizes must be set before MatSetUp() or MatXXXSetPreallocation() is called.
