Member Function Documentation

void mfem::Operator::FormLinearSystem ( const Array< int > &  ess_tdof_list,
Vector x,
Vector b,
Operator *&  A,
Vector X,
Vector B,
int  copy_interior = 0 
)

Form a constrained linear system using a matrix-free approach.

Assuming square operator, form the operator linear system A(X)=B, corresponding to it and the right-hand side b, by applying any necessary transformations such as: parallel assembly, conforming constraints for non-conforming AMR and eliminating boundary conditions.

Note
Static condensation and hybridization are not supported for general operators (cf. the analogous methods BilinearForm::FormLinearSystem() and ParBilinearForm::FormLinearSystem()).

The constraints are specified through the prolongation P from GetProlongation(), and restriction R from GetRestriction() methods, which are e.g. available through the (parallel) finite element space of any (parallel) bilinear form operator. We assume that the operator is square, using the same input and output space, so we have: A(X)=[P^t (*this) P](X), B=P^t(b), and x=P(X).

The vector x must contain the essential boundary condition values. These are eliminated through the ConstrainedOperator class and the vector X is initialized by setting its essential entries to the boundary conditions and all other entries to zero (copy_interior == 0) or copied from x (copy_interior != 0).

After solving the system A(X)=B, the (finite element) solution x can be recovered by calling Operator::RecoverFEMSolution() with the same vectors X, b, and x.

Note
The caller is responsible for destroying the output operator A!
If there are no transformations, X simply reuses the data of x.

virtual Operator& mfem::Operator::GetGradient ( const Vector x) const
inlinevirtual

Evaluate the gradient operator at the point x. The default behavior in class Operator is to generate an error.

Reimplemented in mfem::NonlinearForm, and mfem::ParNonlinearForm.

Definition at line 57 of file operator.hpp.

virtual const Operator* mfem::Operator::GetProlongation ( ) const

virtual const Operator* mfem::Operator::GetRestriction ( ) const

Restriction operator from input vectors for the operator to linear algebra (linear system) vectors. NULL means identity.

void mfem::Operator::RecoverFEMSolution ( const Vector X,
const Vector b,
Vector x 
)
virtual

Reconstruct a solution vector x (e.g. a GridFunction) from the solution X of a constrained linear system obtained from Operator::FormLinearSystem().

Call this method after solving a linear system constructed using Operator::FormLinearSystem() to recover the solution as an input vector, x, for this Operator (presumably a finite element grid function). This method has identical signature to the analogous method for bilinear forms, though currently b is not used in the implementation.

int mfem::Operator::Width ( ) const
inline

Get the width (size of input) of the Operator. Synonym with NumCols().
