Zeros all entries (except possibly the main diagonal) of a set of rows and columns of a matrix; using local numbering of rows.


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode MatZeroRowsColumnsLocal(Mat mat, PetscInt numRows, const PetscInt rows[], PetscScalar diag, Vec x, Vec b)


Input Parameters#

  • mat - the matrix

  • numRows - the number of rows to remove

  • rows - the global row indices

  • diag - value put in all diagonals of eliminated rows

  • x - optional vector of solutions for zeroed rows (other entries in vector are not used)

  • b - optional vector of right-hand side, that will be adjusted by provided solution


Before calling MatZeroRowsColumnsLocal(), the user must first set the local-to-global mapping by calling MatSetLocalToGlobalMapping(), this is often already set for matrices obtained with DMCreateMatrix().

See MatZeroRowsColumns() for details on how this routine operates.
