Dear developers of Petsc and users,
I have the following numerical problem.

I need to solve the system Ax = B, where A is a square matrix, x and B 
are rectangular matrix
The system is solved by doing LU decomposition.

In the next step I need to solve a system A'y = C, where A' is a complex 
conjugate of A.
My question: is it possible to reuse the LU decomposition of A for doing 
Thank you,
