Detailed Description

template<int dim>
class PolynomialsBDM< dim >

This class implements the Hdiv-conforming, vector-valued Brezzi-Douglas-Marini ( BDM ) polynomials described in Brezzi and Fortin's Mixed and Hybrid Finite Element Methods (refer to pages 119 - 124).

The BDM polynomial space contain the entire \((P_{k})^{n}\) space (constructed with PolynomialSpace Legendre polynomials) as well as part of \((P_{k+1})^{n}\) (ie. \((P_{k})^{n} \subset BDM_{k} \subset (P_{k+1})^{n}\)). Furthermore, \(BDM_{k}\) elements are designed so that \(\nabla \cdot q \in P_{k-1} (K)\) and \(q \cdot n |_{e_{i}} \in P_{k}(e_{i})\). More details of two and three dimensional \(BDM_{k}\) elements are given below.

In 2D:

\( BDM_{k} = \{\mathbf{q} | \mathbf{q} = p_{k} (x,y) + r \; \text{curl} (x^{k+1}y) + s \; \text{curl} (xy^{k+1}), p_{k} \in (P_{k})^{2} \}\).

Note: the curl of a scalar function is given by \(\text{curl}(f(x,y)) = \begin{pmatrix} f_{y}(x,y) \\ -f_{x}(x,y) \end{pmatrix}\).

The basis used to construct the \(BDM_{1}\) shape functions is

\begin{align*} \phi_0 = \begin{pmatrix} 1 \\ 0 \end{pmatrix}, \phi_1 = \begin{pmatrix} -\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{3}x \\ 0 \end{pmatrix}, \phi_2 = \begin{pmatrix} -\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{3}y \\ 0 \end{pmatrix}, \phi_3 = \begin{pmatrix} 0 \\ 1 \end{pmatrix}, \phi_4 = \begin{pmatrix} 0 \\ -\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{3}x \end{pmatrix}, \phi_5 = \begin{pmatrix} 0 \\ -\sqrt{3}+2\sqrt{3}y \end{pmatrix}, \phi_6 = \begin{pmatrix} x^2 \\ -2xy \end{pmatrix}, \phi_7 = \begin{pmatrix} 2xy \\ -y^2 \end{pmatrix}. \end{align*}

The dimension of the \(BDM_{k}\) space is \((k+1)(k+2)+2\), with \(k+1\) unknowns per edge and \(k(k-1)\) interior unknowns.

In 3D:

\( BDM_{k} = \{\mathbf{q} | \mathbf{q} = p_{k} (x,y,z) + \sum_{i=0}^{k} ( r_{i} \; \text{curl} \begin{pmatrix} 0\\0\\xy^{i+1}z^{k-i} \end{pmatrix} + s_{i} \; \text{curl} \begin{pmatrix} yz^{i+1}x^{k-i}\\0\\0 \end{pmatrix} + t_{i} \; \text{curl} \begin{pmatrix}0\\zx^{i+1}y^{k-i}\\0\end{pmatrix}) , p_{k} \in (P_{k})^{3} \}\).

Note: the 3D description of \(BDM_{k}\) is not unique. See Mixed and Hybrid Finite Element Methods page 122 for an alternative definition.

The dimension of the \(BDM_{k}\) space is \(\dfrac{(k+1)(k+2)(k+3)}{2}+3(k+1)\), with \(\dfrac{(k+1)(k+2)}{2}\) unknowns per face and \(\dfrac{(k-1)k(k+1)}{2}\) interior unknowns.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

template<int dim>
PolynomialsBDM< dim >::PolynomialsBDM ( const unsigned int  k)

Constructor. Creates all basis functions for BDM polynomials of given degree.

  • k: the degree of the BDM-space, which is the degree of the largest complete polynomial space Pk contained in the BDM- space.

Member Function Documentation

template<int dim>
void PolynomialsBDM< dim >::compute ( const Point< dim > &  unit_point,
std::vector< Tensor< 1, dim > > &  values,
std::vector< Tensor< 2, dim > > &  grads,
std::vector< Tensor< 3, dim > > &  grad_grads,
std::vector< Tensor< 4, dim > > &  third_derivatives,
std::vector< Tensor< 5, dim > > &  fourth_derivatives 
) const

Compute the value and the first and second derivatives of each BDM polynomial at unit_point.

The size of the vectors must either be zero or equal n(). In the first case, the function will not compute these values.

If you need values or derivatives of all tensor product polynomials then use this function, rather than using any of the compute_value, compute_grad or compute_grad_grad functions, see below, in a loop over all tensor product polynomials.

template<int dim>
unsigned int PolynomialsBDM< dim >::n ( ) const
inline

Return the number of BDM polynomials.

Definition at line 207 of file polynomials_bdm.h.

template<int dim>
unsigned int PolynomialsBDM< dim >::degree ( ) const
inline

Return the degree of the BDM space, which is one less than the highest polynomial degree.

Definition at line 215 of file polynomials_bdm.h.

template<int dim>
std::string PolynomialsBDM< dim >::name ( ) const
inline

Return the name of the space, which is BDM.

Definition at line 223 of file polynomials_bdm.h.

template<int dim>
unsigned int PolynomialsBDM< dim >::compute_n_pols ( unsigned int  degree)
static

Return the number of polynomials in the space BDM(degree) without requiring to build an object of PolynomialsBDM. This is required by the FiniteElement classes.
