Detailed Description

template<class Scalar>
class Thyra::ProductVectorBase< Scalar >

Base interface for product vectors.

This class defines an abstract interface for a vector that is built out of the one or more other vectors to form what mathematicians like to call a "product vector".

A product vector is simply the concatenation of two or more vectors to form a larger "composite" vector. Specifically, a product vector with numBlock constituent block vectors represents the blocked vector


         [ v[0]           ]
         [ v[1]           ]
 this =  [ .              ]
         [ v[numBlocks-1] ]
 

The constituent vectors v[k] can be accessed through the const and non-const access functions getBlock().

A product vector knows its product space which is returned by the productSpace() function. A ProductVectorBase object is created by a ProductVectorSpaceBase object and never directly created by clients.

This class is only an interface. A standard implementation of this interface that should be sufficient for 99% or so of use cases is provided in the concrete subclass DefaultProductVector.

Member Function Documentation

template<class Scalar>
virtual Teuchos::RefCountPtr<VectorBase<Scalar> > Thyra::ProductVectorBase< Scalar >::getNonconstVectorBlock const int  k  )  [pure virtual]
 

Returns a non-persisting non-const view of the (zero-based) kth block vector.

Parameters:
k [in] The (zero-based) kth block index specifying which vector block to access.
Preconditions:

Note that *this is not guaranteed to be modified until the smart pointer returned from this function, as well as any other smart pointers created from this smart pointer, are destroyed. This requirement allows more flexibility in how this function is implemented.

Also note that no further interactions with *this should be performed until the view returned from this function is released as described above.

template<class Scalar>
virtual Teuchos::RefCountPtr<const VectorBase<Scalar> > Thyra::ProductVectorBase< Scalar >::getVectorBlock const int  k  )  const [pure virtual]
 

Returns a non-persisting const view of the (zero-based) kth block vector.

Parameters:
k [in] The (zero-based) kth block index specifying which vectorblock to access.
Preconditions:
