Detailed Description

A namespace for vector classes.

This namespace contains various classes that provide wrappers to vector classes from different external libraries like Trilinos (EPetra) or PETSc and native implementations like LinearAlgebra::distributed::Vector.

The different vector classes are derived from VectorSpaceVector to provide a joint interface for vector space operations, are derived from ReadWriteVector (or ReadWriteVector itself), or both. The separation of vector space operations (like norms or vector additions) through VectorSpaceVector and element access through ReadWriteVector are by design and improve performance.
