EPSSetInitialSpace
Specify a basis of vectors that constitute the initial space, that is, the subspace from which the solver starts to iterate.
Synopsis
#include "slepceps.h"
PetscErrorCode EPSSetInitialSpace(EPS eps,PetscInt n,Vec is[])
Collective on eps
Input Parameters
 eps   the eigenproblem solver context

 n   number of vectors

 is   set of basis vectors of the initial space

Notes
Some solvers start to iterate on a single vector (initial vector). In that case,
the other vectors are ignored.
These vectors do not persist from one EPSSolve() call to the other, so the
initial space should be set every time.
The vectors do not need to be mutually orthonormal, since they are explicitly
orthonormalized internally.
Common usage of this function is when the user can provide a rough approximation
of the wanted eigenspace. Then, convergence may be faster.
