Report Typos and Errors

MatCreate

Creates a matrix where the type is determined from either a call to MatSetType() or from the options database with a call to MatSetFromOptions(). The default matrix type is AIJ, using the routines MatCreateSeqAIJ() or MatCreateAIJ() if you do not set a type in the options database. If you never call MatSetType() or MatSetFromOptions() it will generate an error when you try to use the matrix.

Synopsis

#include "petscmat.h"  
PetscErrorCode  MatCreate(MPI_Comm comm,Mat *A)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameter

comm -MPI communicator

Output Parameter

A -the matrix

Options Database Keys

-mat_type seqaij - AIJ type, uses MatCreateSeqAIJ()
-mat_type mpiaij - AIJ type, uses MatCreateAIJ()
-mat_type seqdense - dense type, uses MatCreateSeqDense()
-mat_type mpidense - dense type, uses MatCreateDense()
-mat_type seqbaij - block AIJ type, uses MatCreateSeqBAIJ()
-mat_type mpibaij - block AIJ type, uses MatCreateBAIJ()

Even More Options Database Keys

See the manpages for particular formats (e.g., MatCreateSeqAIJ()) for additional format-specific options.
