Extracts several submatrices from a matrix. If submat points to an array of valid matrices, they may be reused to store the new submatrices.


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode MatCreateSubMatrices(Mat mat, PetscInt n, const IS irow[], const IS icol[], MatReuse scall, Mat *submat[])


Input Parameters#

  • mat - the matrix

  • n - the number of submatrixes to be extracted (on this processor, may be zero)

  • irow, icol - index sets of rows and columns to extract


Output Parameter#

  • submat - the array of submatrices


MatCreateSubMatrices() can extract ONLY sequential submatrices (from both sequential and parallel matrices). Use MatCreateSubMatrix() to extract a parallel submatrix.

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.

The index sets may not have duplicate entries.

When extracting submatrices from a parallel matrix, each processor can form a different submatrix by setting the rows and columns of its individual index sets according to the local submatrix desired.

When finished using the submatrices, the user should destroy them with MatDestroySubMatrices().

MAT_REUSE_MATRIX can only be used when the nonzero structure of the original matrix has not changed from that last call to MatCreateSubMatrices().

This routine creates the matrices in submat; you should NOT create them before calling it. It also allocates the array of matrix pointers submat.

For MATBAIJ matrices the index sets must respect the block structure, that is if they request one row/column in a block, they must request all rows/columns that are in that block. For example, if the block size is 2 you cannot request just row 0 and column 0.

Fortran Note#

The Fortran interface is slightly different from that given below; it requires one to pass in as submat a Mat (integer) array of size at least n+1.
