Detailed Description

A namespace in which we declare typedefs for types used in deal.II, as well as special values for these types.

Typedef Documentation

typedef unsigned int types::subdomain_id

The type used to denote subdomain_ids of cells.

See the glossary for more information.

There is a special value, numbers::invalid_subdomain_id that is used to indicate an invalid value of this type.

Definition at line 42 of file types.h.

typedef unsigned int types::global_dof_index

The type used for global indices of degrees of freedom. While in sequential computations the 4 billion indices of 32-bit unsigned integers is plenty, parallel computations using the parallel::distributed::Triangulation class can overflow this number and we need a bigger index space.

The data type always indicates an unsigned integer type.

Definition at line 77 of file types.h.

typedef unsigned char types::boundary_id

The type used to denote boundary indicators associated with every piece of the boundary and, in the case of meshes that describe manifolds in higher dimensions, associated with every cell.

There is a special value, numbers::internal_face_boundary_id that is used to indicate an invalid value of this type and that is used as the boundary indicator for faces that are in the interior of the domain and therefore not part of any addressable boundary component.

Definition at line 99 of file types.h.

typedef unsigned int types::manifold_id

The type used to denote manifold indicators associated with every object of the mesh.

There is a special value, numbers::flat_manifold_id that is used to indicate the standard cartesian manifold.

typedef unsigned char types::material_id

The type used to denote material indicators associated with every cell.

There is a special value, numbers::invalid_material_id that is used to indicate an invalid value of this type.
