I???d like to compute a nonlinear equation system. My system looks like 
this: K(u)*u=f, in which u, f are vectors and K is a Matrix that depends 
on u. I have already a function to calculate K, but I don???t now how can 
I use PETSc to solve this system?
Thanks for support, kind regard
Marco Schauer
