Thank you for your reply.
The 10x10 matrix is the result of product between large matrices with 10 different processors. So I think I need to gather entries into a processor and create SeqDense matrix. Could you let me know what to do for gathering entries saved on several processors?
Sincerely,
Joon

For parallel dense you need to use MatType MATELEMENTAL and configure PETSc with ../download-elemental
Note that if N is 10 then it is insane to do the inverse in parallel. Just use SeqDense. If you want it on two processes just do it on one and send there result to the other or do it on both.
Unless the matrix is at least 100s by 100s maybe more I don't see doing it in parallel as saving any time, rather it will be slower

Could you let me know the fastest way to get the inverse? Also, I don't want to rebuild or configure something for the inverse because I use petsc in my school server and I don't have permission to configure.
