PetscSplitOwnershipEqual

Given a global (or local) length determines a local (or global) length via a simple formula, trying to have all local lengths equal

Synopsis

#include "petscsys.h" 
PetscErrorCode  PetscSplitOwnershipEqual(MPI_Comm comm,PetscInt *n,PetscInt *N)
Collective (if n or N is PETSC_DECIDE)

Input Parameters

comm - MPI communicator that shares the object being divided
n - local length (or PETSC_DECIDE to have it set)
N - global length (or PETSC_DECIDE)

Notes

This is intended to be used with MATSCALAPACK, where the local size must be equal in all processes (except possibly the last one). For instance, the local sizes when spliting N=50 with 6 processes are 9,9,9,9,9,5

n and N cannot be both PETSC_DECIDE

If one processor calls this with n or N of PETSC_DECIDE then all processors must. Otherwise, an error is thrown in debug mode while the program will hang in optimized (i.e. configured --with-debugging=0) mode.
