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

If created with a single process communicator, this matrix type inherits from MATSEQAIJ. Otherwise, this matrix type inherits from MATMPIAIJ. Hence for single process communicators, MatSeqAIJSetPreallocation is supported, and similarly MatMPIAIJSetPreallocation is supported for communicators controlling multiple processes. It is recommended that you call both of the above preallocation routines for simplicity. One can also call MatConvert for an inplace conversion to or from the MATSEQAIJ or MATMPIAIJ type (depending on the communicator size) without data copy.

Options Database Keys

-mat_type aijmumps - sets the matrix type to "aijmumps" during a call to MatSetFromOptions()
-mat_mumps_sym <0,1,2> - 0 the matrix is unsymmetric, 1 symmetric positive definite, 2 symmetric
-mat_mumps_icntl_4 <0,1,2,3,4> - print level
-mat_mumps_icntl_6 <0,...,7> - matrix prescaling options (see MUMPS User's Guide)
-mat_mumps_icntl_7 <0,...,7> - matrix orderings (see MUMPS User's Guide)
-mat_mumps_icntl_9 <1,2> - A or A^T x=b to be solved: 1 denotes A, 2 denotes A^T
-mat_mumps_icntl_10 <n> - maximum number of iterative refinements
