MATDSCPACK = "dscpack" - A matrix type providing direct solvers (Cholesky) for sequential or distributed matrices via the external package DSCPACK. If DSCPACK is installed (see the manual for instructions on how to declare the existence of external packages), a matrix type can be constructed which invokes DSCPACK solvers. After calling MatCreate(...,A), simply call MatSetType(A,MATDSCPACK). This matrix type is only supported for double precision real.

This matrix inherits from MATSEQBAIJ if constructed with a single process communicator, and from MATMPIBAIJ otherwise. As a result, for sequential matrices, MatSeqBAIJSetPreallocation is supported, and similarly MatMPIBAIJSetPreallocation is supported for distributed matrices. It is recommended that you call both of the above preallocation routines for simplicity. Also, MatConvert can be called to perform inplace conversion to and from MATSEQBAIJ or MATMPIBAIJ for sequential or distributed matrices respectively.
