[petsc-users] Solving with SNES

The state of my problem is set and saved in elements and faces. So I should
pass and update them for residual and Jacobian calculations in each Newton
step. It is better for me to use them since the element and face
connectivities required in residual and jacobian matrix are saved there.
How would be my best choice then???
