Does each A_i have nonzero entries (mostly) associated with one
part of the matrix? Or does each process have values
scattered all around the matrix?
In the former case you should simply create one parallel MPIAIJ
matrix and call MatSetValues() to put the values
into it. We don't have any kind of support for the later case, perhaps
if you describe how the matrix entries come about someone
would have suggestions on how to proceed.
