Is there a way to get the matrix size to layout in a “useful” way, in the sense that the first process, which owns the two degrees of freedom of p_dm and the first N0 number of the rows of u_dm, controls the corresponding N0+2 rows of the matrix, and analgously for the second process has the next N1 rows of the u_dm vector, and has the next N1 rows of the matrix?
