DMCreate#

Creates an empty DM object. DMs are the abstract objects in PETSc that mediate between meshes and discretizations and the algebraic solvers, time integrators, and optimization algorithms.

Synopsis#

#include "petscdm.h"          
#include "petscdmlabel.h"     
#include "petscds.h"     
PetscErrorCode DMCreate(MPI_Comm comm, DM *dm)

Collective

Input Parameter#

  • comm - The communicator for the DM object

Output Parameter#

  • dm - The DM object

Notes#

See DMType for a brief summary of available DM.

The type must then be set with DMSetType(). If you never call DMSetType() it will generate an error when you try to use the dm.
