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

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

Consult UMFPACK documentation for more information about the Control parameters which correspond to the options database keys below.
