This class implements the functionality for polynomial mappings \(Q_p\) of polynomial degree \(p\) that will be used on all cells of the mesh. The MappingQ1 and MappingQ classes specialize this behavior slightly.
The class is poorly named. It should really have been called MappingQ because it consistently uses \(Q_p\) mappings on all cells of a triangulation. However, the name MappingQ was already taken when we rewrote the entire class hierarchy for mappings. One might argue that one should always use MappingQGeneric over the existing class MappingQ (which, unless explicitly specified during the construction of the object, only uses mappings of degree \(p\) on cells at the boundary of the domain). On the other hand, there are good reasons to use MappingQ in many situations: in many situations, curved domains are only provided with information about how exactly edges at the boundary are shaped, but we do not know anything about internal edges. Thus, in the absence of other information, we can only assume that internal edges are straight lines, and in that case internal cells may as well be treated is bilinear quadrilaterals or trilinear hexahedra. (An example of how such meshes look is shown in step1 already, but it is also discussed in the "Results" section of step6.) Because bi/trilinear mappings are significantly cheaper to compute than higher order mappings, it is advantageous in such situations to use the higher order mapping only on cells at the boundary of the domain – i.e., the behavior of MappingQ. Of course, MappingQGeneric also uses bilinear mappings for interior cells as long as it has no knowledge about curvature of interior edges, but it implements this the expensive way: as a general \(Q_p\) mapping where the mapping support points just happen to be arranged along linear or bilinear edges or faces.
There are a number of special cases worth considering:
As described above, one often only knows a manifold description of a surface but not the interior of the computational domain. In such a case, a FlatManifold object will be assigned to the interior entities that describes a usual planar coordinate system where the additional points for the higher order mapping are placed exactly according to a bi/trilinear mapping. When combined with a nonflat manifold on the boundary, for example a circle bulging into the interior of a square cell, the two manifold descriptions are in general incompatible. For example, a FlatManifold defined solely through the cell's vertices would put an interior point located at some small distance epsilon away from the boundary along a straight line and thus in general outside the concave part of a circle. If the polynomial degree of MappingQ is sufficiently high, the transformation from the reference cell to such a cell would in general contain inverted regions close to the boundary.
In order to avoid this situation, this class applies an algorithm for making this transition smooth using a socalled transfinite interpolation that is essentially a linear blend between the descriptions along the surrounding entities. In the algorithm that computes additional points, the compute_mapping_support_points() method, all the entities of the cells are passed through hierarchically, starting from the lines to the quads and finally hexes. Points on objects higher up in the hierarchy are obtained from the manifold associated with that object, taking into account all the points previously computed by the manifolds associated with the lowerdimensional objects, not just the vertices. If only a line is assigned a curved boundary but the adjacent quad is on a flat manifold, the flat manifold on the quad will take the points on the deformed line into account when interpolating the position of the additional points inside the quad and thus always result in a welldefined transformation.
The interpolation scheme used in this class makes sure that curved descriptions can go over to flat descriptions within a single layer of elements, maintaining the overall optimal convergence rates of the finite element interpolation. However, one does often get better solution qualities if the transition between curved boundaries and flat interior domains is spread over a larger range as the mesh is refined. This is provided by the special manifold TransfiniteInterpolationManifold.

Transform a field of vectors or 1differential forms according to the selected MappingType.
mapping_bdm
, mapping_nedelec
, etc. This alias should be preferred to using the types below.The mapping types currently implemented by derived classes are:
mapping_contravariant:
maps a vector field on the reference cell to the physical cell through the Jacobian:
\[ \mathbf u(\mathbf x) = J(\hat{\mathbf x})\hat{\mathbf u}(\hat{\mathbf x}). \]
In physics, this is usually referred to as the contravariant transformation. Mathematically, it is the push forward of a vector field.
mapping_covariant:
maps a field of oneforms on the reference cell to a field of oneforms on the physical cell. (Theoretically this would refer to a DerivativeForm<1,dim,1> but we canonically identify this type with a Tensor<1,dim>). Mathematically, it is the pull back of the differential form
\[ \mathbf u(\mathbf x) = J(\hat{\mathbf x})(J(\hat{\mathbf x})^{T} J(\hat{\mathbf x}))^{1}\hat{\mathbf u}(\hat{\mathbf x}). \]
Gradients of scalar differentiable functions are transformed this way.
In the case when dim=spacedim the previous formula reduces to
\[ \mathbf u(\mathbf x) = J(\hat{\mathbf x})^{T}\hat{\mathbf u}(\hat{\mathbf x}) \]
because we assume that the mapping \(\mathbf F_K\) is always invertible, and consequently its Jacobian \(J\) is an invertible matrix.
mapping_piola:
A field of dim1forms on the reference cell is also represented by a vector field, but again transforms differently, namely by the Piola transform \[ \mathbf u(\mathbf x) = \frac{1}{\text{det}\;J(\hat{\mathbf x})} J(\hat{\mathbf x}) \hat{\mathbf u}(\hat{\mathbf x}). \]
[in]  input  An array (or part of an array) of input objects that should be mapped.

The object pointed to was created by the get_data(), get_face_data(), or get_subface_data() function, and will have been updated as part of a call to fill_fe_values(), fill_fe_face_values(), or fill_fe_subface_values() for the current cell, before calling the current function. In other words, this object also represents with respect to which cell the transformation should be applied to.

Transform a field of differential forms from the reference cell to the physical cell. It is useful to think of \(\mathbf{T} = \nabla \mathbf u\) and \(\hat{\mathbf T} = \hat \nabla \hat{\mathbf u}\), with \(\mathbf u\) a vector field. The mapping types currently implemented by derived classes are:

\[ \mathbf T(\mathbf x) = \hat{\mathbf T}(\hat{\mathbf x}) J(\hat{\mathbf x})(J(\hat{\mathbf x})^{T} J(\hat{\mathbf x}))^{1}. \]
Jacobians of spacedimvector valued differentiable functions are transformed this way.
In the case when dim=spacedim the previous formula reduces to
\[ \mathbf T(\mathbf x) = \hat{\mathbf u}(\hat{\mathbf x}) J(\hat{\mathbf x})^{1}. \]

Transform a tensor field from the reference cell to the physical cell. This tensors are most of times the hessians in the reference cell of vector fields that have been pulled back from the physical cell.
The mapping types currently implemented by derived classes are:

maps a field of forms on the reference cell to a field of forms on the physical cell. Mathematically, it is the pull back of the differential form

where
\[ J^{\dagger} = J(\hat{\mathbf x})(J(\hat{\mathbf x})^{T} J(\hat{\mathbf x}))^{1}. \]

The mapping types currently implemented by derived classes are:
mapping_contravariant_hessian:

Given a set of update flags, compute which other quantities also need to be computed in order to satisfy the request by the given flags. Then return the combination of the original set of flags and those just computed.
As an example, if update_flags
contains update_JxW_values (i.e., the product of the determinant of the Jacobian and the weights provided by the quadrature formula), a mapping may require the computation of the full Jacobian matrix in order to compute its determinant. They would then return not just update_JxW_values, but also update_jacobians. (This is not how it is actually done internally in the derived classes that compute the JxW values – they set update_contravariant_transformation instead, from which the determinant can also be computed – but this does not take away from the instructiveness of the example.)

Create and return a pointer to an object into which mappings can store data that only needs to be computed once but that can then be used whenever the mapping is applied to a concrete cell (e.g., in the various transform() functions, as well as in the fill_fe_values(), fill_fe_face_values() and fill_fe_subface_values() that form the interface of mappings with the FEValues class).
Derived classes will return pointers to objects of a type derived from Mapping::InternalDataBase (see there for more information) and may pre compute some information already (in accordance with what will be asked of the mapping in the future, as specified by the update flags) and for the given quadrature object. Subsequent calls to transform() or fill_fe_values() and friends will then receive back the object created here (with the same set of update flags and for the same quadrature object). Derived classes can therefore precompute some information in their get_data() function and store it in the internal data object.
The mapping classes do not keep track of the objects created by this function. Ownership will therefore rest with the caller.
An extensive discussion of the interaction between this function and FEValues can be found in the How Mapping, FiniteElement, and FEValues work together documentation module.
update_flags  A set of flags that define what is expected of the mapping class in future calls to transform() or the fill_fe_values() group of functions. This set of flags may contain flags that mappings do not know how to deal with (e.g., for information that is in fact computed by the finite element classes, such as UpdateFlags::update_values). Derived classes will need to store these flags, or at least that subset of flags that will require the mapping to perform any actions in fill_fe_values(), in InternalDataBase::update_each.

Compute information about the mapping from the reference cell to the real cell indicated by the first argument to this function. Derived classes will have to implement this function based on the kind of mapping they represent. It is called by FEValues::reinit().
Conceptually, this function's represents the application of the mapping \(\mathbf x=\mathbf F_K(\hat {\mathbf x})\) from reference coordinates \(\mathbf\in [0,1]^d\) to real space coordinates \(\mathbf x\) for a given cell \(K\). Its purpose is to compute the following kinds of data:
The information computed by this function is used to fill the various member variables of the output argument of this function. Which of the member variables of that structure should be filled is determined by the update flags stored in the Mapping::InternalDataBase object passed to this function.
An extensive discussion of the interaction between this function and FEValues can be found in the How Mapping, FiniteElement, and FEValues work together documentation module.
[in]  cell  The cell of the triangulation for which this function is to compute a mapping from the reference cell to. 
[in]  cell_similarity  Whether or not the cell given as first argument is simply a translation, rotation, etc of the cell for which this function was called the most recent time. This information is computed simply by matching the vertices (as stored by the Triangulation) between the previous and the current cell. The value passed here may be modified by implementations of this function and should then be returned (see the discussion of the return value of this function). 
[in]  quadrature  A reference to the quadrature formula in use for the current evaluation. This quadrature object is the same as the one used when creating the internal_data object. The object is used both to map the location of quadrature points, as well as to compute the JxW values for each quadrature point (which involves the quadrature weights).

cell_similarity
argument to this function. The returned value will be used for the corresponding argument when FEValues::reinit() calls FiniteElement::fill_fe_values(). In most cases, derived classes will simply want to return the value passed for cell_similarity
. However, implementations of this function may downgrade the level of cell similarity. This is, for example, the case for classes that take not only into account the locations of the vertices of a cell (as reported by the Triangulation), but also other information specific to the mapping. The purpose is that FEValues::reinit() can compute whether a cell is similar to the previous one only based on the cell's vertices, whereas the mapping may also consider displacement fields (e.g., in the MappingQ1Eulerian and MappingFEField classes). In such cases, the mapping may conclude that the previously computed cell similarity is too optimistic, and invalidate it for subsequent use in FiniteElement::fill_fe_values() by returning a less optimistic cell similarity value.internal_data
and output_data
objects. In other words, if an implementation of this function knows that it has written a piece of data into the output argument in a previous call, then there is no need to copy it there again in a later call if the implementation knows that this is the same value.

Return the locations of support points for the mapping. For example, for \(Q_1\) mappings these are the vertices, and for higher order polynomial mappings they are the vertices plus interior points on edges, faces, and the cell interior that are placed in consultation with the Manifold description of the domain and its boundary. However, other classes may override this function differently. In particular, the MappingQ1Eulerian class does exactly this by not computing the support points from the geometry of the current cell but instead evaluating an externally given displacement field in addition to the geometry of the cell.
The default implementation of this function is appropriate for most cases. It takes the locations of support points on the boundary of the cell from the underlying manifold. Interior support points (ie. support points in quads for 2d, in hexes for 3d) are then computed using an interpolation from the lowerdimensional entities (lines, quads) in order to make the transformation as smooth as possible without introducing additional boundary layers within the cells due to the placement of support points.
The function works its way from the vertices (which it takes from the given cell) via the support points on the line (for which it calls the add_line_support_points() function) and the support points on the quad faces (in 3d, for which it calls the add_quad_support_points() function). It then adds interior support points that are either computed by interpolation from the surrounding points using weights for transfinite interpolation, or if dim<spacedim, it asks the underlying manifold for the locations of interior points.
Reimplemented in MappingQEulerian< dim, VectorType, spacedim >::MappingQEulerianGeneric, and MappingQ1Eulerian< dim, VectorType, spacedim >.

Append the support points of all shape functions located on bounding lines of the given cell to the vector a
. Points located on the vertices of a line are not included.
This function uses the underlying manifold object of the line (or, if none is set, of the cell) for the location of the requested points. This function is usually called by compute_mapping_support_points() function.
This function is made virtual in order to allow derived classes to choose shape function support points differently than the present class, which chooses the points as interpolation points on the boundary.

A vector of tables of weights by which we multiply the locations of the support points on the perimeter of an object (line, quad, hex) to get the location of interior support points.
Access into this table is by [structdim1], i.e., use 0 to access the support point weights on a line (i.e., the interior points of the GaussLobatto quadrature), use 1 to access the support point weights from to perimeter to the interior of a quad, and use 2 to access the support point weights from the perimeter to the interior of a hex.
The table itself contains as many columns as there are surrounding points to a particular object (2 for a line, 4 + 4*(degree1)
for a quad, 8 + 12*(degree1) + 6*(degree1)*(degree1)
for a hex) and as many rows as there are strictly interior points.
For the definition of this table see equation (8) of the `mapping' report.

A table of weights by which we multiply the locations of the vertex points of the cell to get the location of all additional support points, both on lines, quads, and hexes (as appropriate). This data structure is used when we fill all support points at once, which is the case if the same manifold is attached to all subentities of a cell. This way, we can avoid some of the overhead in transforming data for mappings.
The table has as many rows as there are vertices to the cell (2 in 1D, 4 in 2D, 8 in 3D), and as many rows as there are additional support points in the mapping, i.e., (degree+1)^dim  2^dim
.
