Detailed Description

template<int dim, int spacedim = dim>
class SphericalManifold< dim, spacedim >

Manifold description for a spherical space coordinate system.

You can use this Manifold object to describe any sphere, circle, hypersphere or hyperdisc in two or three dimensions. This manifold can be used as a co-dimension one manifold descriptor of a spherical surface embedded in a higher dimensional space, or as a co-dimension zero manifold descriptor for a body with positive volume, provided that the center of the spherical space is excluded from the domain. An example for the use of this function would be in the description of a hyper-shell or hyper-ball geometry, for example after creating a coarse mesh using GridGenerator::hyper_ball(). (However, it is worth mentioning that generating a good mesh for a disk or ball is complicated and requires addition steps. See the "Possibilities for extensions" section of step-6 for an extensive discussion of how one would construct such meshes and what one needs to do for it.)

The two template arguments match the meaning of the two template arguments in Triangulation<dim, spacedim>, however this Manifold can be used to describe both thin and thick objects, and the behavior is identical when dim <= spacedim, i.e., the functionality of SphericalManifold<2,3> is identical to SphericalManifold<3,3>.

While PolarManifold reflects the usual notion of polar coordinates, it may not be suitable for domains that contain either the north or south poles. Consider for instance the pair of points \(x_1=(1,\pi/3,0)\) and \(x_2=(1,\pi/3,\pi)\) in polar coordinates (lying on the surface of a sphere with radius one, on a parallel at height \(\pi/3\)). In this case connecting the points with a straight line in polar coordinates would take the long road around the globe, without passing through the north pole.

These two points would be connected (using a PolarManifold) by the curve

\begin{align*} s: [0,1] & \rightarrow & \mathbb S^3 \\ t & \mapsto & (1,\pi/3,0) + (0,0,t\pi) \end{align*}

This curve is not a geodesic on the sphere, and it is not how we would connect those two points. A better curve, would be the one passing through the North pole:

\[ s(t) = x_1 \cos(\alpha(t)) + \kappa \times x_1 \sin(\alpha(t)) + \kappa ( \kappa \cdot x_1) (1-\cos(\alpha(t))). \]

where \(\kappa = \frac{x_1 \times x_2}{\Vert x_1 \times x_2 \Vert}\) and \(\alpha(t) = t \cdot \arccos(x_1 \cdot x_2)\) for \(t\in[0,1]\). Indeed, this is a geodesic, and it is the natural choice when connecting points on the surface of the sphere. In the examples above, the PolarManifold class implements the first way of connecting two points on the surface of a sphere, while SphericalManifold implements the second way, i.e., this Manifold connects points using geodesics. If more than two points are involved through a SphericalManifold::get_new_points() call, a so-called spherical average is used where the final point minimizes the weighted distance to all other points via geodesics.

In particular, this class implements a Manifold that joins any two points in space by first projecting them onto the surface of a sphere with unit radius, then connecting them with a geodesic, and finally rescaling the final radius so that the resulting one is the weighted average of the starting radii. This Manifold is identical to PolarManifold in dimension two, while for dimension three it returns points that are more uniformly distributed on the sphere, and it is invariant with respect to rotations of the coordinate system, therefore avoiding the problems that PolarManifold has at the poles. Notice, in particular, that computing tangent vectors at the poles with a PolarManifold is not well defined, while it is perfectly fine with this class.

For mathematical reasons, it is impossible to construct a unique map of a sphere using only geodesic curves, and therefore, using this class with MappingManifold is discouraged. If you use this Manifold to describe the geometry of a sphere, you should use MappingQ as the underlying mapping, and not MappingManifold.

This Manifold can be used only on geometries where a ball with finite radius is removed from the center. Indeed, the center is a singular point for this manifold, and if you try to connect two points across the center, they would travel on spherical coordinates, avoiding the center.

The ideal geometry for this Manifold is an HyperShell. If you plan to use this Manifold on a HyperBall, you have to make sure you do not attach this Manifold to the cell containing the center. It is advisable to combine this class with TransfiniteInterpolationManifold to ensure a smooth transition from a curved shape to the straight coordinate system in the center of the ball.

Compute a new set of points that interpolate between the given points surrounding_points. weights is a table with as many columns as surrounding_points.size(). The number of rows in weights must match the length of new_points.

This function is optimized to perform on a collection of new points, by collecting operations that are not dependent on the weights outside of the loop over all new points.

The implementation does not allow for surrounding_points and new_points to point to the same array, so make sure to pass different objects into the function.
