Compose a new PetscSF by putting the inverse of the second SF under the first one


#include "petscsf.h" 
PetscErrorCode PetscSFComposeInverse(PetscSF sfA,PetscSF sfB,PetscSF *sfBA)

Input Parameters

sfA - The first PetscSF
sfB - The second PetscSF

Output Parameters

sfBA -The composite SF.


Currently, the two SFs must be defined on congruent communicators and they must be true star forests, i.e. the same leaf is not connected with different roots. Even more, all roots of the second SF must have a degree of 1, i.e., no roots have more than one leaf connected.

sfA's leaf space and sfB's leaf space might be partially overlapped. The composition builds a graph with sfA's roots and sfB's roots only when there is a path between them. Unconnected roots are not in sfBA. Doing a Bcast on the new SF is equivalent to doing a Bcast on sfA, then a Reduce on sfB, on connected roots.
