[petsc-users] Coupling HYPRE with PETSc for local grid refinement

Dear Dr. Brown,
     I was trying to use PETSc to mimic something like Chombo. The 
figure in this website represents my thought very well.  
My code simulates a flow over a objective, i.e. 2D cylinder. Finer 
resolution is needed near the objective. I can manually define where the 
finer resolution is needed.
     BTW, I wonder if there is any examples for the Vec/Mat interface. 
Also, is there any examples for PETSc for GPU.
