#include "slepcbv.h" 
PetscErrorCode BVSetActiveColumns(BV bv,PetscInt l,PetscInt k)
Logically Collective on bv

Input Parameters

bv  - the basis vectors context
l  - number of leading columns
k  - number of active columns


In operations such as BVMult() or BVDot(), only the first k columns are considered. This is useful when the BV is filled from left to right, so the last m-k columns do not have relevant information.

Also in operations such as BVMult() or BVDot(), the first l columns are normally not included in the computation. See the manpage of each operation.

In orthogonalization operations, the first l columns are treated differently: they participate in the orthogonalization but the computed coefficients are not stored.
