MATMPIAIJSPOOLES = "mpiaijspooles" - A matrix type providing direct solvers (LU) for distributed matrices via the external package Spooles. If MPIAIJSPOOLES is installed (see the manual for instructions on how to declare the existence of external packages), a matrix type can be constructed which invokes SPOOLES solvers. After calling MatCreate(...,A), simply call MatSetType(A,MATMPIAIJSPOOLES).

This matrix inherits from MATMPIAIJ. As a result, MatMPIAIJSetPreallocation is supported for this matrix type. One can also call MatConvert for an inplace conversion to or from the MATMPIAIJ type without data copy.

Consult Spooles documentation for more information about the options database keys below.

Options Database Keys

-mat_type mpiaijspooles - sets the matrix type to "mpiaijspooles" during a call to MatSetFromOptions()
-mat_spooles_tau <tau> - upper bound on the magnitude of the largest element in L or U
-mat_spooles_seed <seed> - random number seed used for ordering
-mat_spooles_msglvl <msglvl> - message output level
-mat_spooles_ordering <BestOfNDandMS,MMD,MS,ND> - ordering used
-mat_spooles_maxdomainsize <n> - maximum subgraph size used by Spooles orderings
-mat_spooles_maxzeros <n> - maximum number of zeros inside a supernode
-mat_spooles_maxsize <n> - maximum size of a supernode
-mat_spooles_FrontMtxInfo <true,fase> - print Spooles information about the computed factorization
-mat_spooles_symmetryflag <0,1,2> - 0: SPOOLES_SYMMETRIC, 1: SPOOLES_HERMITIAN, 2: SPOOLES_NONSYMMETRIC
-mat_spooles_patchAndGoFlag <0,1,2> - 0: no patch, 1: use PatchAndGo strategy 1, 2: use PatchAndGo strategy 2
-mat_spooles_toosmall <dt> - drop tolerance for PatchAndGo strategy 1
-mat_spooles_storeids <bool integer> - if nonzero, stores row and col numbers where patches were applied in an IV object
-mat_spooles_fudge <delta> - fudge factor for rescaling diagonals with PatchAndGo strategy 2
-mat_spooles_storevalues <bool integer> - if nonzero and PatchAndGo strategy 2 is used, store change in diagonal value in a DV object
