MATSBAIJSPOOLES = "sbaijspooles" - A matrix type providing direct solvers (Cholesky) for sequential and parallel symmetric matrices via the external package Spooles. If Spooles 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,MATSBAIJSPOOLES).

This matrix inherits from MATSBAIJ. As a result, MatSeqSBAIJSetPreallocation and MatMPISBAIJSetPreallocation are supported for this matrix type. One can also call MatConvert for an inplace conversion to or from the MATSBAIJ type without data copy.
