Hi Ryan,
Thanks alot.
There's still some parts I don't understand. It'll be great if someone can
help:
In ex22f.f90, there's a :
MatStencil row(4),col(4,7)
I understand that the 7 is due to the 7-pt stencil. However, why is there a
"4"? In that eg., coarsest grid has dimension 3 with 3 lvl. it seems that in
eg. ex29.c, it is only given as "row", not array
As for Neumann B.C.s, it's mentioned there's null space of the coefficient
matrix A. looking at ex29,
if (user->bcType == NEUMANN) {
MatNullSpace <http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-as/snapshots/petsc-3.0.0/docs/manualpages/Mat/MatNullSpace.html#MatNullSpace>
nullspace;
KSPGetNullSpace
<http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-as/snapshots/petsc-3.0.0/docs/manualpages/KSP/KSPGetNullSpace.html#KSPGetNullSpace>(dmmg->ksp,&nullspace);
MatNullSpaceRemove
<http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-as/snapshots/petsc-3.0.0/docs/manualpages/Mat/MatNullSpaceRemove.html#MatNullSpaceRemove>(nullspace,b,PETSC_NULL
<http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-as/snapshots/petsc-3.0.0/docs/manualpages/Sys/PETSC_NULL.html#PETSC_NULL>);
}
I don't really understand what it is trying to do. My BC has du/dx=0 and
du/dy = 0 and I believe it's the same as that of ex29.c
if I do it in Fortran, is it the same?
Thanks again!
