Detailed Description

Ifpack_Partitioner: A class to decompose local Ifpack_Graph's.

Class Ifpack_Partitioner enables the decomposition of a local Ifpack_Graph's. It is supposed that the graph refers to a localized matrix (that is, a matrix that has been filtered through Ifpack_LocalFilter).

The overloaded operator (int i) can be used to extract the local partition ID of local row i.

The partitions created by Ifpack_Partitioner derived clased are non-overlapping in graph sense. This means that each row (or, more approriately, vertex) of G is assigned to exactly one partition.

Partitioner can be extended using the functionalities of class Ifpack_OverlappingPartitioner (itself derived from Ifpack_Partitioner. This class extends the non-overlapping partitions by the required amount of overlap, considering local nodes only (that is, this overlap do not modify the overlap among the processes).

Ifpack_Partitioner is a pure virtual class. Concrete implementations are:

Generically, a constructor requires an Ifpack_Graph object. Ifpack_Graph is a pure virtual class. Concrete implentations are:

An example of use is an Ifpack_Partitioner derived class is as follows:

#include "Ifpack_Partitioner.h"
#include "Ifpack_LinearPartitioner.h"
#include "Ifpack_Graph.h"
#include "Ifpack_Graph_Epetra_CrsGraph.h"
Epetra_CrsMatrix* A; // A is filled
// create the wrapper from Epetra_CrsGraph
// we aim to create non-overlapping partitions only
Ifpack_Partitioner Partitioner(Graph);
Ifpack_Partitioner* Partitioner;
Partitioner = new Ifpack_Graph_Epetra_CrsGraph(&A);
// we want 16 local parts
List.set("partitioner: local parts", 16);
// and an overlap of 0 among the local parts (default option)
List.set("partitioner: overlap", 0);
// decompose the graph
// now Graph can be deleted, as Partitioner contains all the
// necessary information to use the partitions
delete Graph;
// we can get the number of parts actually created...
int NumParts = Partitioner.NumParts();
// ... and the number of rows in each of them
for (int i = 0 ; i < NumParts ; ++i) {
cout << "rows in " << i << "=" << Partitioner.RowsInPart(i);
// .. and, for non-overlapping partitions only, the partition ID
// for each local row simply using:
for (int i = 0 ; i < A->NumMyRows() ; ++i)
cout << "Partition[" << i <<"] = " << Partitioner(i) << endl;

When overlapping partitiones are created, the user can get the row ID contained in each partition as follows:

for (int i = 0 ; i < NumParts ; ++i) {
for (int j = 0 ; j < Partitioner.RowsInPart(i) ; ++j) {
cout << "Partition " << i << ", contains local row "
<< Partitioner(i,j) << endl;

Ifpack_Partitioner is used to create the subblocks in Ifpack_BlockJacobi, Ifpack_BlockGaussSeidel, and Ifpack_BlockSymGaussSeidel.
