Detailed Description

Auxiliary class aiding in the handling of block structures like in BlockVector or FESystem.

The information obtained from this class falls into two groups. First, it is possible to obtain the number of blocks, namely size(), the block_size() for each block and the total_size() of the object described by the block indices, namely the length of the whole index set. These functions do not make any assumption on the ordering of the index set.

If on the other hand the index set is ordered "by blocks", such that each block forms a consecutive set of indices, this class that manages the conversion of global indices into a block vector or matrix to the local indices within this block. This is required, for example, when you address a global element in a block vector and want to know which element within which block this is. It is also useful if a matrix is composed of several blocks, where you have to translate global row and column indices to local ones.

Member Typedef Documentation

Declare the type for container size.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

BlockIndices::BlockIndices ( )

Default constructor. Initialize for zero blocks.

Definition at line 254 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::BlockIndices ( const std::vector< size_type > &  block_sizes)

Constructor. Initialize the number of entries in each block i as block_sizes[i]. The number of blocks will be the size of block_sizes.

Definition at line 276 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::BlockIndices ( const unsigned int  n_blocks,
const size_type  block_size = 0 

Specialized constructor for a structure with blocks of equal size.

Definition at line 263 of file block_indices.h.

Member Function Documentation

void BlockIndices::reinit ( const unsigned int  n_blocks,
const size_type  n_elements_per_block 

Reinitialize the number of blocks and assign each block the same number of elements.

Definition at line 227 of file block_indices.h.

void BlockIndices::reinit ( const std::vector< size_type > &  block_sizes)

Reinitialize the number of indices within each block from the given argument. The number of blocks will be adjusted to the size of block_sizes and the size of block i is set to block_sizes[i].

Definition at line 240 of file block_indices.h.

void BlockIndices::push_back ( const size_type  size)

Add another block of given size to the end of the block structure.

Definition at line 287 of file block_indices.h.

unsigned int BlockIndices::size ( ) const

Number of blocks in index field.

Definition at line 326 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::size_type BlockIndices::total_size ( ) const

Return the total number of indices accumulated over all blocks, that is, the dimension of the vector space of the block vector.

Definition at line 335 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::size_type BlockIndices::block_size ( const unsigned int  i) const

The size of the ith block.

Definition at line 345 of file block_indices.h.

std::string BlockIndices::to_string ( ) const

String representation of the block sizes. The output is of the form [nb->b1,b2,b3|s], where nb is n_blocks(), s is total_size() and b1 etc. are the values of block_size().

Definition at line 355 of file block_indices.h.

std::pair< unsigned int, BlockIndices::size_type > BlockIndices::global_to_local ( const size_type  i) const

Return the block and the index within that block for the global index i. The first element of the pair is the block, the second the index within it.

Definition at line 297 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::size_type BlockIndices::local_to_global ( const unsigned int  block,
const size_type  index 
) const

Return the global index of index in block block.

Definition at line 313 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices::size_type BlockIndices::block_start ( const unsigned int  i) const

The start index of the ith block.

Definition at line 372 of file block_indices.h.

BlockIndices & BlockIndices::operator= ( const BlockIndices b)

Copy operator.

Definition at line 382 of file block_indices.h.

bool BlockIndices::operator== ( const BlockIndices b) const

Compare whether two objects are the same, i.e. whether the number of blocks and the sizes of all blocks are equal.

Definition at line 393 of file block_indices.h.

void BlockIndices::swap ( BlockIndices b)

Swap the contents of these two objects.

Definition at line 409 of file block_indices.h.

std::size_t BlockIndices::memory_consumption ( ) const

Determine an estimate for the memory consumption (in bytes) of this object.

Definition at line 419 of file block_indices.h.

Friends And Related Function Documentation

void swap ( BlockIndices u,
BlockIndices v 

Global function swap which overloads the default implementation of the C++ standard library which uses a temporary object. The function simply exchanges the data of the two objects.

Member Data Documentation

unsigned int BlockIndices::n_blocks

Number of blocks. While this value could be obtained through start_indices.size()-1, we cache this value for faster access.

Definition at line 187 of file block_indices.h.

std::vector<size_type> BlockIndices::start_indices

Global starting index of each vector. The last and redundant value is the total number of entries.
