Detailed Description

Epetra_Util: The Epetra Util Wrapper Class.

The Epetra_Util class is a collection of useful functions that cut across a broad set of other classes. Specifically, sorting is provided by this class. A random number generator is also provided.

Epetra_Util is a serial interface only. This is appropriate since the standard utilities are only specified for serial execution (or shared memory parallel).

The random number generator is a multiplicative linear congruential generator, with multiplier 16807 and modulus 2^31 - 1. It is based on the algorithm described in "Random Number Generators: Good Ones Are Hard To Find", S. K. Park and K. W. Miller, Communications of the ACM, vol. 31, no. 10, pp. 1192-1201.

Member Function Documentation

unsigned int Epetra_Util::Seed  )  const

Get seed from Random function.

Current random number seed.

int Epetra_Util::SetSeed unsigned int  Seed  ) 

Set seed for Random function.

In Seed - An integer on the interval [0, INT_MAX).
Integer error code, set to 0 if successful.

int *  Keys,

Epetra_Util Sort Routine (Shell sort).

This function sorts a list of integer values in ascending or descending order. Additionally it sorts any number of companion lists of doubles or ints. A shell sort is used, which is fast if indices are already sorted.

In SortAscending - Sort keys in ascending order if true, otherwise sort in descending order..
In NumKeys - Number of integer values to be sorted.
In/Out Keys - List of integers to be sorted.
In NumDoubleCompanions - Number of lists of double precision numbers to be sorted with the key. If set to zero, DoubleCompanions is ignored and can be set to zero.
In DoubleCompanions - DoubleCompanions[i] is a pointer to the ith list of doubles to be sorted with key.
In NumIntCompanions - Number of lists of integers to be sorted with the key. If set to zero, IntCompanions is ignored and can be set to zero.
In IntCompanions - IntCompanions[i] is a pointer to the ith list of integers to be sorted with key.
