VecCreateMPIWithArray#

Creates a parallel, array-style vector, where the user provides the array space to store the vector values.

Synopsis#

#include "petscvec.h"   
PetscErrorCode VecCreateMPIWithArray(MPI_Comm comm, PetscInt bs, PetscInt n, PetscInt N, const PetscScalar array[], Vec *vv)

Collective

Input Parameters#

  • comm - the MPI communicator to use

  • bs - block size, same meaning as VecSetBlockSize()

  • n - local vector length, cannot be PETSC_DECIDE

  • N - global vector length (or PETSC_DECIDE to have calculated)

  • array - the user provided array to store the vector values

Output Parameter#

  • vv - the vector

Notes#

Use VecDuplicate() or VecDuplicateVecs() to form additional vectors of the same type as an existing vector.

If the user-provided array is NULL, then VecPlaceArray() can be used at a later stage to SET the array for storing the vector values.

PETSc does NOT free the array when the vector is destroyed via VecDestroy(). The user should not free the array until the vector is destroyed.
