Zeros all entries (except possibly the main diagonal) of a set of rows of a matrix.
mat - the matrix
numRows - the number of rows to zero
rows - the global row indices
diag - value put in the diagonal of the zeroed rows
x - optional vector of solutions for zeroed rows (other entries in vector are not used), these must be set before this call
b - optional vector of right hand side, that will be adjusted by provided solution entries
This routine, along with
MatZeroRowsColumns(), is typically used to eliminate known Dirichlet boundary conditions from a linear system.
For each zeroed row, the value of the corresponding
b is set to
diag times the value of the corresponding
If the resulting linear system is to be solved with
KSP then one can (but does not have to) call
KSPSetInitialGuessNonzero() to allow the
Krylov method to take advantage of the known solution on the zeroed rows.
MatZeroRowsColumns() for the
MATBAIJ matrix formats this removes the old nonzero structure, from the eliminated rows of the matrix
but does not release memory. Because of this removal matrix-vector products with the adjusted matrix will be a bit faster. For the dense and block diagonal
formats this does not alter the nonzero structure.
The user can set a value in the diagonal entry (or for the
formats can optionally remove the main diagonal entry from the
nonzero structure as well, by passing 0.0 as the final argument).
For the parallel case, all processes that share the matrix (i.e., those in the communicator used for matrix creation) MUST call this routine, regardless of whether any rows being zeroed are owned by them.
Each processor can indicate any rows in the entire matrix to be zeroed (i.e. each process does NOT have to list only rows local to itself).
