FNEvaluateFunctionMat
Computes the value of the function f(A) for a given matrix A, where the result is also a matrix.
Synopsis
#include "slepcfn.h"
PetscErrorCode FNEvaluateFunctionMat(FN fn,Mat A,Mat B)
Logically Collective
Input Parameters
 fn   the math function context

 A   matrix on which the function must be evaluated

Output Parameter
 B   (optional) matrix resulting from evaluating f(A)

Notes
Matrix A must be a square sequential dense Mat, with all entries equal on
all processes (otherwise each process will compute different results).
If matrix B is provided, it must also be a square sequential dense Mat, and
both matrices must have the same dimensions. If B is NULL (or B=A) then the
function will perform an inplace computation, overwriting A with f(A).
If A is known to be real symmetric or complex Hermitian then it is
recommended to set the appropriate flag with MatSetOption(), because
symmetry can sometimes be exploited by the algorithm.
Scaling factors are taken into account, so the actual function evaluation
will return beta*f(alpha*A).
