Mesh2Dual -> AdaptiveRapart


in the parmetis manual is mentioned the possibility to use Mesh2Dual routine to construct dual graph that can be then used in AdaptiveRepart, I would like to know, how to obtain vertex distribution array (vtxdist), which is needed in AdaptiveRepart routine. Is it assumed, that nodes are also numbered in a such way, that is similar to element numbering - each processor owns specific range of nodes/elements? This is unfortunately not mentioned in the manual.

Thank you

RE: The Mesh2Dual routine

The Mesh2Dual routine creates a graph in which each element is a vertex. The vtxdist array for this graph is identical to the elmdist array that is being provided. It does not do anything with the nodes of the mesh.
