Report Typos and Errors


Creates a sparse matrix of type SEQBAIJMKL. This type inherits from BAIJ and is largely identical, but uses sparse BLAS routines from Intel MKL whenever possible. MatMult, MatMultAdd, MatMultTranspose, and MatMultTransposeAdd operations are currently supported. If the installed version of MKL supports the "SpMV2" sparse inspector-executor routines, then those are used by default. Default PETSc kernels are used otherwise.


PetscErrorCode  MatCreateSeqBAIJMKL(MPI_Comm comm,PetscInt bs,PetscInt m,PetscInt n,PetscInt nz,const PetscInt nnz[],Mat *A)

Input Parameters

comm - MPI communicator, set to PETSC_COMM_SELF
bs - size of block, the blocks are ALWAYS square. One can use MatSetBlockSizes() to set a different row and column blocksize but the row blocksize always defines the size of the blocks. The column blocksize sets the blocksize of the vectors obtained with MatCreateVecs()
m - number of rows
n - number of columns
nz - number of nonzero blocks per block row (same for all rows)
nnz - array containing the number of nonzero blocks in the various block rows (possibly different for each block row) or NULL

Output Parameter

A -the matrix

It is recommended that one use the MatCreate(), MatSetType() and/or MatSetFromOptions(), MatXXXXSetPreallocation() paradigm instead of this routine directly. [MatXXXXSetPreallocation() is, for example, MatSeqAIJSetPreallocation]

Options Database Keys

-mat_no_unroll - uses code that does not unroll the loops in the block calculations (much slower)
-mat_block_size - size of the blocks to use


The number of rows and columns must be divisible by blocksize.

If the nnz parameter is given then the nz parameter is ignored

A nonzero block is any block that as 1 or more nonzeros in it

The block AIJ format is fully compatible with standard Fortran 77 storage. That is, the stored row and column indices can begin at either one (as in Fortran) or zero. See the users' manual for details.

Specify the preallocated storage with either nz or nnz (not both). Set nz=PETSC_DEFAULT and nnz=NULL for PETSc to control dynamic memory allocation. See Users-Manual: ch_mat for details. matrices.
