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


#include "petscdmda.h"     
PetscErrorCode  DMDASetBlockFills(DM da,const PetscInt *dfill,const PetscInt *ofill)
Logically Collective on DMDA

Input Parameter

da - the distributed array
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
