MatCreateSubMatrix#

Gets a single submatrix on the same number of processors as the original matrix.

Synopsis#

#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode MatCreateSubMatrix(Mat mat, IS isrow, IS iscol, MatReuse cll, Mat *newmat)

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • mat - the original matrix

  • isrow - parallel IS containing the rows this processor should obtain

  • iscol - parallel IS containing all columns you wish to keep. Each process should list the columns that will be in IT’s “diagonal part” in the new matrix.

  • cll - either MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX or MAT_REUSE_MATRIX

Output Parameter#

  • newmat - the new submatrix, of the same type as the original matrix

Notes#

The submatrix will be able to be multiplied with vectors using the same layout as iscol.

Some matrix types place restrictions on the row and column indices, such as that they be sorted or that they be equal to each other. For MATBAIJ and MATSBAIJ matrices the indices must include all rows/columns of a block; for example, if the block size is 3 one cannot select the 0 and 2 rows without selecting the 1 row.

The index sets may not have duplicate entries.

The first time this is called you should use a cll of MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX, the MatCreateSubMatrix() routine will create the newmat for you. Any additional calls to this routine with a mat of the same nonzero structure and with a call of MAT_REUSE_MATRIX will reuse the matrix generated the first time. You should call MatDestroy() on newmat when you are finished using it.

The communicator of the newly obtained matrix is ALWAYS the same as the communicator of the input matrix.

If iscol is NULL then all columns are obtained (not supported in Fortran).

If isrow and iscol have a nontrivial block-size, then the resulting matrix has this block-size as well. This feature is used by PCFIELDSPLIT to allow easy nesting of its use.

Example usage#

Consider the following 8x8 matrix with 34 non-zero values, that is assembled across 3 processors. Let’s assume that proc0 owns 3 rows, proc1 owns 3 rows, proc2 owns 2 rows. This division can be shown as follows

            1  2  0  |  0  3  0  |  0  4
    Proc0   0  5  6  |  7  0  0  |  8  0
            9  0 10  | 11  0  0  | 12  0
    -------------------------------------
           13  0 14  | 15 16 17  |  0  0
    Proc1   0 18  0  | 19 20 21  |  0  0
            0  0  0  | 22 23  0  | 24  0
    -------------------------------------
    Proc2  25 26 27  |  0  0 28  | 29  0
           30  0  0  | 31 32 33  |  0 34

Suppose isrow = [0 1 | 4 | 6 7] and iscol = [1 2 | 3 4 5 | 6]. The resulting submatrix is

            2  0  |  0  3  0  |  0
    Proc0   5  6  |  7  0  0  |  8
    -------------------------------
    Proc1  18  0  | 19 20 21  |  0
    -------------------------------
    Proc2  26 27  |  0  0 28  | 29
            0  0  | 31 32 33  |  0
