Creates a MATSEQAIJ from a MATMPIAIJ matrix.


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode MatMPIAIJGetLocalMat(Mat A, MatReuse scall, Mat *A_loc)

Not Collective

Input Parameters#

Output Parameter#

  • A_loc - the local sequential matrix generated


The matrix is created by taking all A’s local rows and putting them into a sequential matrix with mlocal rows and n columns.mlocal is the row count obtained with MatGetLocalSize() and n is the global column count obtained with MatGetSize().

In other words combines the two parts of a parallel MATMPIAIJ matrix on each process to a single matrix.

When A is sequential and MAT_INITIAL_MATRIX is requested, the matrix returned is the diagonal part of A (which contains the entire matrix), with its reference count increased by one. Hence changing values of A_loc changes A. If MAT_REUSE_MATRIX is requested on a sequential matrix then MatCopy(Adiag,*A_loc,SAME_NONZERO_PATTERN) is called to fill A_loc. Thus one can preallocate the appropriate sequential matrix A_loc and then call this routine with MAT_REUSE_MATRIX. In this case, one can modify the values of A_loc without affecting the original sequential matrix.
