Allocates memory for a sparse parallel matrix in AIJ format (the default parallel PETSc format).


#include "petscmat.h" 
PetscErrorCode  MatMPIAIJSetPreallocationCSR(Mat B,const PetscInt i[],const PetscInt j[], const PetscScalar v[])
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

B - the matrix
i - the indices into j for the start of each local row (starts with zero)
j - the column indices for each local row (starts with zero)
v - optional values in the matrix


The i, j, and v arrays ARE copied by this routine into the internal format used by PETSc; thus you CANNOT change the matrix entries by changing the values of v[] after you have called this routine. Use MatCreateMPIAIJWithSplitArrays() to avoid needing to copy the arrays.

The i and j indices are 0 based, and i indices are indices corresponding to the local j array.

The format which is used for the sparse matrix input, is equivalent to a row-major ordering.. i.e for the following matrix, the input data expected is as shown

       1 0 0
       2 0 3     P0
       4 5 6     P1

    Process0 [P0]: rows_owned=[0,1]
       i =  {0,1,3}  [size = nrow+1  = 2+1]
       j =  {0,0,2}  [size = 3]
       v =  {1,2,3}  [size = 3]

    Process1 [P1]: rows_owned=[2]
       i =  {0,3}    [size = nrow+1  = 1+1]
       j =  {0,1,2}  [size = 3]
       v =  {4,5,6}  [size = 3]
