void  do_reinit (const size_type m, const size_type n) 
Implementation of a sequential dense matrix class based on PETSc. All the functionality is actually in the base class, except for the calls to generate a sequential dense matrix. This is possible since PETSc only works on an abstract matrix type and internally distributes to functions that do the actual work depending on the actual matrix type (much like using virtual functions). Only the functions creating a matrix of specific type differ, and are implemented in this particular class.

. In other words, this function writes the elements in full_matrix

inherited 
Remove all elements from this row
by setting them to zero. The function does not modify the number of allocated nonzero entries, it only sets some entries to zero. It may drop them from the sparsity pattern, though (but retains the allocated memory in case new entries are again added later).
This operation is used in eliminating constraints (e.g. due to hanging nodes) and makes sure that we can write this modification to the matrix without having to read entries (such as the locations of nonzero elements) from it – without this operation, removing constraints on parallel matrices is a rather complicated procedure.
The second parameter can be used to set the diagonal entry of this row to a value different from zero. The default is to set it to zero.
Definition at line 127 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Same as clear_row(), except that it works on a number of rows at once.
The second parameter can be used to set the diagonal entries of all cleared rows to something different from zero. Note that all of these diagonal entries get the same value – if you want different values for the diagonal entries, you have to set them by hand.
Definition at line 136 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
PETSc matrices store their own sparsity patterns. So, in analogy to our own SparsityPattern class, this function compresses the sparsity pattern and allows the resulting matrix to be used in all other operations where before only assembly functions were allowed. This function must therefore be called once you have assembled the matrix.
See Compressing distributed objects for more information.
Definition at line 193 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Return the value of the entry (i,j). This may be an expensive operation and you should always take care where to call this function. In contrast to the respective function in the MatrixBase
class, we don't throw an exception if the respective entry doesn't exist in the sparsity pattern of this class, since PETSc does not transmit this information.
This function is therefore exactly equivalent to the el()
function.
Return the value of the matrix entry (i,j). If this entry does not exist in the sparsity pattern, then zero is returned. While this may be convenient in some cases, note that it is simple to write algorithms that are slow compared to an optimal solution, since the sparsity of the matrix is not used.
Definition at line 165 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Return the main diagonal element in the ith row. This function throws an error if the matrix is not quadratic.
Since we do not have direct access to the underlying data structure, this function is no faster than the elementwise access using the el() function. However, we provide this function for compatibility with the SparseMatrix class.

inherited 
Return the local dimension of the matrix, i.e. the number of rows stored on the present MPI process. For sequential matrices, this number is the same as m(), but for parallel matrices it may be smaller.
To figure out which elements exactly are stored locally, use local_range().
Definition at line 263 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Return a pair of indices indicating which rows of this matrix are stored locally. The first number is the index of the first row stored, the second the index of the one past the last one that is stored locally. If this is a sequential matrix, then the result will be the pair (0,m()), otherwise it will be a pair (i,i+n), where n=local_size()
.
Definition at line 276 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.
Return whether index
is in the local range or not, see also local_range().

inherited 
Return the number of nonzero elements of this matrix. Actually, it returns the number of entries in the sparsity pattern; if any of the entries should happen to be zero, it is counted anyway.

inherited 
Return the linftynorm of the matrix, that is \(M_infty=max_{all rows i}\sum_{all columns j} M_ij\), (max. sum of rows). This is the natural matrix norm that is compatible to the linftynorm of vectors, i.e. \(Mv_infty \leq M_infty v_infty\). (cf. HaemmerlinHoffmann: Numerische Mathematik)
Definition at line 351 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Return the frobenius norm of the matrix, i.e. the square root of the sum of squares of all entries in the matrix.
Definition at line 364 of file petsc_matrix_base.cc.

inherited 
Return the square of the norm of the vector \(v\) with respect to the norm induced by this matrix, i.e. \(\left(v,Mv\right)\). This is useful, e.g. in the finite element context, where the \(L_2\) norm of a function equals the matrix norm with respect to the mass matrix of the vector representing the nodal values of the finite element function.
Obviously, the matrix needs to be quadratic for this operation.
The implementation of this function is not as efficient as the one in the MatrixBase
class used in deal.II (i.e. the original one, not the PETSc wrapper class) since PETSc doesn't support this operation and needs a temporary vector.
Note that if the current object represents a parallel distributed matrix (of type PETScWrappers::MPI::SparseMatrix), then the given vector has to be a distributed vector as well. Conversely, if the matrix is not distributed, then neither may the vector be.

Ensure that the add/set mode that is required for actions following this call is compatible with the current mode. Should be called from all internal functions accessing matrix elements.

protectedinherited 
Internal function that checks that there are no pending insert/add operations. Throws an exception otherwise. Useful before calling any PETSc internal functions modifying the matrix.

protectedinherited 
For some matrix storage formats, in particular for the PETSc distributed blockmatrices, set and add operations on individual elements can not be freely mixed. Rather, one has to synchronize operations when one wants to switch from setting elements to adding to elements. BlockMatrixBase automatically synchronizes the access by calling this helper function for each block. This function ensures that the matrix is in a state that allows adding elements; if it previously already was in this state, the function does nothing.

protectedinherited

This function assumes that the calling matrix \(A\) and \(B\) have compatible sizes. The size of \(C\) will be set within this function.
The content as well as the sparsity pattern of the matrix \(C\) will be reset by this function, so make sure that the sparsity pattern is not used somewhere else in your program. This is an expensive operation, so think twice before you use this function.

Read or write the data of this object to or from a stream for the purpose of serialization using the BOOST serialization library.
This function does not actually serialize any of the member variables of this class. The reason is that what this class stores is only who subscribes to this object, but who does so at the time of storing the contents of this object does not necessarily have anything to do with who subscribes to the object when it is restored. Consequently, we do not want to overwrite the subscribers at the time of restoring, and then there is no reason to write the subscribers out in the first place.
