DMCreateColoring

Gets coloring for a DM

Synopsis

#include "petscdm.h"          
#include "petscdmlabel.h"     
#include "petscds.h"     
PetscErrorCode  DMCreateColoring(DM dm,ISColoringType ctype,ISColoring *coloring)
Collective on dm

Input Parameters

dm - the DM object
ctype - IS_COLORING_LOCAL or IS_COLORING_GLOBAL

Output Parameter

coloring - the coloring

Notes

Coloring of matrices can be computed directly from the sparse matrix nonzero structure via the MatColoring object or from the mesh from which the matrix comes from. In general using the mesh produces a more optimal coloring (fewer colors).

This produces a coloring with the distance of 2, see MatSetColoringDistance() which can be used for efficiently computing Jacobians with MatFDColoringCreate()
