Detailed Description

This namespace provides a collection of functions that aid in refinement and coarsening of triangulations. Despite the name of the namespace, the functions do not actually refine the triangulation, but only mark cells for refinement or coarsening. In other words, they perform the "mark" part of the typical "solve-estimate-mark-refine" cycle of the adaptive finite element loop.

In contrast to the functions in namespace GridRefinement, the functions in the current namespace are intended for distributed meshes, i.e., objects of type parallel::distributed::Triangulation.

Function Documentation

template<int dim, class VectorType , int spacedim>
void parallel::distributed::GridRefinement::refine_and_coarsen_fixed_number ( parallel::distributed::Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria,
const VectorType &  criteria,
const double  top_fraction_of_cells,
const double  bottom_fraction_of_cells,
const unsigned int  max_n_cells = std::numeric_limits<unsigned int>::max() 
)

Like GridRefinement::refine_and_coarsen_fixed_number, but for parallel distributed triangulations.

The vector of criteria needs to be a vector of refinement criteria for all cells active on the current triangulation, i.e., it needs to be of length tria.n_active_cells() (and not tria.n_locally_owned_active_cells()). In other words, the vector needs to include entries for ghost and artificial cells. However, the current function will only look at the indicators that correspond to those cells that are actually locally owned, and ignore the indicators for all other cells. The function will then coordinate among all processors that store part of the triangulation so that at the end a fraction top_fraction_of_cells of all Triangulation::n_global_active_cells() active cells are refined, rather than a fraction of the Triangulation::n_locally_active_cells on each processor individually. In other words, it may be that on some processors, no cells are refined at all.

The same is true for the fraction of cells that is coarsened.

Like GridRefinement::refine_and_coarsen_fixed_fraction, but for parallel distributed triangulations.

The vector of criteria needs to be a vector of refinement criteria for all cells active on the current triangulation, i.e., it needs to be of length tria.n_active_cells() (and not tria.n_locally_owned_active_cells()).

However, the current function will only look at the indicators that correspond to those cells that are actually locally owned, and ignore the indicators for all other cells. The function will then coordinate among all processors that store part of the triangulation so that at the end the smallest fraction of Triangulation::n_global_active_cells (not Triangulation::n_locally_owned_active_cells() on each processor individually) is refined that together make up a total of top_fraction_of_error of the total error. In other words, it may be that on some processors, no cells are refined at all.

The same is true for the fraction of cells that is coarsened.
