Sets the fill pattern in each block for a multi-component problem of the matrix returned by DMCreateMatrix().


#include "petscdmmoab.h"   
PetscErrorCode DMMoabSetBlockFills(DM dm, const PetscInt *dfill, const PetscInt *ofill)

Logically Collective

Input Parameters#

  • dm - the DMMOAB object

  • dfill - the fill pattern in the diagonal block (may be NULL, means use dense block)

  • ofill - the fill pattern in the off-diagonal blocks


This only makes sense when you are doing multicomponent problems but using the MPIAIJ matrix format

The format for dfill and ofill is a 2 dimensional dof by dof matrix with 1 entries representing coupling and 0 entries for missing coupling. For example

             dfill[9] = {1, 0, 0,
                         1, 1, 0,
                         0, 1, 1}

means that row 0 is coupled with only itself in the diagonal block, row 1 is coupled with itself and row 0 (in the diagonal block) and row 2 is coupled with itself and row 1 (in the diagonal block).

DMDASetGetMatrix() allows you to provide general code for those more complicated nonzero patterns then can be represented in the dfill, ofill format
