Report Typos and Errors


Returns a pointer to a contiguous array that contains this processor's portion of the BV data.


#include "slepcbv.h" 
PetscErrorCode BVGetArray(BV bv,PetscScalar **a)
Logically Collective

Input Parameters

bv  - the basis vectors context

Output Parameter

a  - location to put pointer to the array


BVRestoreArray() must be called when access to the array is no longer needed. This operation may imply a data copy, for BV types that do not store data contiguously in memory.

The pointer will normally point to the first entry of the first column, but if the BV has constraints then these go before the regular columns.

Note that for manipulating the pointer to the BV array, one must take into account the leading dimension, which might be different from the local number of rows, see BVGetLeadingDimension().

Use BVGetArrayRead() for read-only access.
