Sets a parameter option for a matrix. Some options may be specific to certain storage formats. Some options determine how values will be inserted (or added). Sorted, row-oriented input will generally assemble the fastest. The default is row-oriented.
Options Describing Matrix Structure#
MAT_SPD- symmetric positive definite
MAT_SYMMETRIC- symmetric in terms of both structure and value
MAT_HERMITIAN- transpose is the complex conjugation
MAT_STRUCTURALLY_SYMMETRIC- symmetric nonzero structure
MAT_SYMMETRY_ETERNAL- indicates the symmetry (or Hermitian structure) or its absence will persist through any changes to the matrix
MAT_STRUCTURAL_SYMMETRY_ETERNAL- indicates the structural symmetry or its absence will persist through any changes to the matrix
These are not really options of the matrix, they are knowledge about the structure of the matrix that users may provide so that they do not need to be computed (usually at a high cost)
Options For Use with
Insert a logically dense subblock, which can be
MAT_ROW_ORIENTED- row-oriented (default)
These options reflect the data you pass in with
MatSetValues(); it has
nothing to do with how the data is stored internally in the matrix
When (re)assembling a matrix, we can restrict the input for efficiency/debugging purposes. These options include
MAT_NEW_NONZERO_LOCATIONS- additional insertions will be allowed if they generate a new nonzero (slow)
MAT_FORCE_DIAGONAL_ENTRIES- forces diagonal entries to be allocated
MAT_IGNORE_OFF_PROC_ENTRIES- drops off-processor entries
MAT_NEW_NONZERO_LOCATION_ERR- generates an error for new matrix entry
MAT_USE_HASH_TABLE- uses a hash table to speed up matrix assembly
MAT_NO_OFF_PROC_ENTRIES- you know each process will only set values for its own rows, will generate an error if any process sets values for another process. This avoids all reductions in the MatAssembly routines and thus improves performance for very large process counts.
MAT_SUBSET_OFF_PROC_ENTRIES- you know that the first assembly after setting this flag will set a superset of the off-process entries required for all subsequent assemblies. This avoids a rendezvous step in the MatAssembly functions, instead sending only neighbor messages.
Some options are relevant only for particular matrix types and are thus ignored by others. Other options are not supported by certain matrix types and will generate an error message if set.
If using Fortran to compute a matrix, one may need to use the column-oriented option (or convert to the row-oriented format).
MAT_NEW_NONZERO_LOCATIONS set to
PETSC_FALSE indicates that any add or insertion
that would generate a new entry in the nonzero structure is instead
ignored. Thus, if memory has not already been allocated for this particular
data, then the insertion is ignored. For dense matrices, in which
the entire array is allocated, no entries are ever ignored.
Set after the first
MatAssemblyEnd(). If this option is set then the MatAssemblyBegin/End() processes has one less global reduction
MAT_NEW_NONZERO_LOCATION_ERR set to PETSC_TRUE indicates that any add or insertion
that would generate a new entry in the nonzero structure instead produces
an error. (Currently supported for
MATBAIJ formats only.) If this option is set then the
MatAssemblyEnd() processes has one less global reduction
MAT_NEW_NONZERO_ALLOCATION_ERR set to
PETSC_TRUE indicates that any add or insertion
that would generate a new entry that has not been preallocated will
instead produce an error. (Currently supported for
only.) This is a useful flag when debugging matrix memory preallocation.
If this option is set then the
MatAssemblyEnd() processes has one less global reduction
MAT_IGNORE_OFF_PROC_ENTRIES set to
PETSC_TRUE indicates entries destined for
other processors should be dropped, rather than stashed.
This is useful if you know that the “owning” processor is also
always generating the correct matrix entries, so that PETSc need
not transfer duplicate entries generated on another processor.
MAT_USE_HASH_TABLE indicates that a hash table be used to improve the
searches during matrix assembly. When this flag is set, the hash table
is created during the first matrix assembly. This hash table is
used the next time through, during
to improve the searching of indices.
should be used with
MAT_USE_HASH_TABLE flag. This option is currently
MATMPIBAIJ format only.
MAT_NO_OFF_PROC_ZERO_ROWS - you know each process will only zero its own rows. This avoids all reductions in the
zero row routines and thus improves performance for very large process counts.
MAT_SORTED_FULL - each process provides exactly its local rows; all column indices for a given row are passed in a
single call to
MatSetValues(), preallocation is perfect, row oriented,
INSERT_VALUES is used. Common
with finite difference schemes with non-periodic boundary conditions.
MAT_SPD_ETERNAL are used by
MatAssemblyEnd() and in other
places where otherwise the value of
MAT_SPD would need to be changed back
PETSC_BOOL3_UNKNOWN because the matrix values had changed so the code cannot be certain that the related property had
