PetscRandomGetValues

Generates a sequence of random numbers. Call this after first calling PetscRandomCreate().

Synopsis

#include "petscsys.h" 
PetscErrorCode  PetscRandomGetValues(PetscRandom r, PetscInt n, PetscScalar *val)
Not Collective

Intput Parameter

r - the random number generator context
n - number of random numbers to generate

Output Parameter

val - the array to hold the values

Notes

Use VecSetRandom() to set the elements of a vector to random numbers.

When PETSc is compiled for complex numbers this returns an array of complex numbers with random real and complex parts. Use PetscRandomGetValuesReal() to get an array of random real numbers.
