Detailed Description

Epetra_SerialDenseVector: A class for constructing and using dense vectors.

The Epetra_SerialDenseVector class enables the construction and use of real-valued, double-precision dense vectors. It is built on the BLAS and LAPACK and derives from the Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix class.

The Epetra_SerialDenseVector class is intended to provide convenient vector notation but derives all signficant functionality from Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix.

Constructing Epetra_SerialDenseVector Objects

There are four Epetra_SerialDenseVector constructors. The first constructs a zero-length object which should be made to appropriate length using the Size() or Resize() functions and then filled with the [] or () operators. The second constructs an object sized to the dimension specified, which should be filled with the [] or () operators. The third is a constructor that accepts user data as a 1D array, and the fourth is a copy constructor. The third constructor has two data access modes (specified by the Epetra_DataAccess argument):

  1. Copy mode - Allocates memory and makes a copy of the user-provided data. In this case, the user data is not needed after construction.
  2. View mode - Creates a "view" of the user data. In this case, the user data is required to remain intact for the life of the object.

Warning:
View mode is extremely dangerous from a data hiding perspective. Therefore, we strongly encourage users to develop code using Copy mode first and only use the View mode in a secondary optimization phase.
Extracting Data from Epetra_SerialDenseVector Objects

Once a Epetra_SerialDenseVector is constructed, it is possible to view the data via access functions.

Warning:
Use of these access functions cam be extremely dangerous from a data hiding perspective.
The final useful function is Flops(). Each Epetra_SerialDenseVector object keep track of the number of serial floating point operations performed using the specified object as the this argument to the function. The Flops() function returns this number as a double precision number. Using this information, in conjunction with the Epetra_Time class, one can get accurate parallel performance numbers.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Epetra_SerialDenseVector  ) 
 

Default constructor; defines a zero size object.

Epetra_SerialDenseVector objects defined by the default constructor should be sized with the Size() or Resize functions. Values should be defined by using the [] or () operators.

Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Epetra_SerialDenseVector int  Length  ) 
 

Sized constructor; defines a variable-sized object.

Parameters:
In Length - Length of vector.
Epetra_SerialDenseVector objects defined by the sized constructor are already sized to the dimension given as a parameter. All values are initialized to 0. Calling this constructor is equivalent to using the default constructor, and then calling the Size function on it. Values should be defined by using the [] or () operators.

Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Epetra_SerialDenseVector Epetra_DataAccess  CV,
double *  Values,
int  Length
 

Set object values from one-dimensional array.

Parameters:
In Epetra_DataAccess - Enumerated type set to Copy or View.
In Values - Pointer to an array of double precision numbers containing the values.
In Length - Length of vector.
See Detailed Description section for further discussion.

Reimplemented from Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix.

const double & Epetra_SerialDenseVector::operator() int  Index  )  const [inline]
 

Element access function.

Returns the specified element of the vector. Bounds checking is enforced.

Returns:
Specified element in vector.
Warning:
No bounds checking is done unless Epetra is compiled with HAVE_EPETRA_ARRAY_BOUNDS_CHECK.

double & Epetra_SerialDenseVector::operator() int  Index  )  [inline]
 

Element access function.

Returns the specified element of the vector. Bounds checking is enforced.

Returns:
Specified element in vector.
Warning:
No bounds checking is done unless Epetra is compiled with HAVE_EPETRA_ARRAY_BOUNDS_CHECK.

Epetra_SerialDenseVector& Epetra_SerialDenseVector::operator= const Epetra_SerialDenseVector Source  ) 
 

Value copy from one vector to another.

The operator= allows one to copy the values from one existing SerialDenseVector to another, as long as there is enough room in the target to hold the source.

Returns:
Values of the left hand side vector are modified by the values of the right hand side vector.

const double & Epetra_SerialDenseVector::operator[] int  Index  )  const [inline]
 

Column access function.

Returns the specified element of the vector.

Returns:
Specified element in vector.
Warning:
No bounds checking is done unless Epetra is compiled with HAVE_EPETRA_ARRAY_BOUNDS_CHECK.

Reimplemented from Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix.

double & Epetra_SerialDenseVector::operator[] int  Index  )  [inline]
 

Element access function.

Returns the specified element of the vector.

Returns:
Specified element in vector.
Warning:
No bounds checking is done unless Epetra is compiled with HAVE_EPETRA_ARRAY_BOUNDS_CHECK.

Reimplemented from Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix.

int Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Random  ) 
 

Set vector values to random numbers.

SerialDenseVector uses the random number generator provided by Epetra_Util. The vector values will be set to random values on the interval (-1.0, 1.0).

Returns:
Integer error code, set to 0 if successful.

Reimplemented from Epetra_SerialDenseMatrix.

int Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Resize int  Length  )  [inline]
 

Resize a Epetra_SerialDenseVector object.

Parameters:
In Length - Length of vector object.
Allows user to define the dimension of a Epetra_SerialDenseVector. This function can be called at any point after construction. Any values that were previously in this object are copied into the new size. If the new shape is smaller than the original, the first Length values are copied to the new vector.

Returns:
Integer error code, set to 0 if successful.

int Epetra_SerialDenseVector::Size int  Length  )  [inline]
 

Set length of a Epetra_SerialDenseVector object; init values to zero.

Parameters:
In Length - Length of vector object.
Allows user to define the dimension of a Epetra_SerialDenseVector. This function can be called at any point after construction. Any values that were previously in this object are destroyed and the resized vector starts off with all zero values.

Returns:
Integer error code, set to 0 if successful.
