argument can be used to map from particle_reference_locations
to the real particle locations.

const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping 

) 
A function that generates one particle at a random location in cell cell
and with index id
. The function expects a random number generator to avoid the expensive generation and destruction of a generator for every particle and optionally takes into account a mapping for the cell. The algorithm implemented in the function is described in [28]. In short, the algorithm generates random locations within the bounding box of the cell
. It then inverts the mapping to check if the generated particle is within the cell itself. This makes sure the algorithm produces statistically random locations even for nonlinear mappings and distorted cells. However, if the ratio between bounding box and cell volume becomes very large – i.e. the cells become strongly deformed, for example a pencil shaped cell that lies diagonally in the domain – then the algorithm can become very inefficient. Therefore, it only tries to find a location ni the cell a fixed number of times before throwing an error message.
[in]  cell  The cell in which a particle is generated. 
[in]  id  The particle index that will be assigned to the new particle. 
[in,out]  random_number_generator  A random number generator that will be used for the creation of th particle. 
[in]  mapping  An optional mapping object that is used to map reference location in the unit cell to the real cell. If no mapping is provided a MappingQ1 is assumed.

) 
A function that generates particles randomly in the domain with a particle density according to a provided probability density function probability_density_function
. The total number of particles that is added to the particle_handler
object is n_particles_to_create
. An optional mapping
argument can be used to map from particle_reference_locations
to the real particle locations. The function can compute the number of particles per cell either deterministically by computing the integral of the probability density function for each cell and creating particles accordingly (if option random_cell_selection
set to false), or it can select cells randomly based on the probability density function and the cell size (if option random_cell_selection
set to true). In either case the position of individual particles inside the cell is computed randomly.
The algorithm implemented in the function is described in [28].
[in]  triangulation  The triangulation associated with the particle_handler . 
[in]  probability_density_function  A function with nonnegative values that determines the probability density of a particle to be generated in this location. The function does not need to be normalized. 
[in]  random_cell_selection  A bool that determines, how the number of particles per cell is computed (see the description above). 
[in]  n_particles_to_create  The number of particles that will be created by this function. 
[in,out]  particle_handler  The particle handler that will take ownership of the generated particles. 
[in]  mapping  An optional mapping object that is used to map reference location in the unit cell to the real cells of the triangulation. If no mapping is provided a MappingQ1 is assumed. 
[in]  random_number_seed  An optional seed that determines the initial state of the random number generator. Use the same number to get a reproducible particle distribution, or a changing number (e.g. based on system time) to generate different particle distributions for each call to this function.

const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping , 

const ComponentMask &  components = ComponentMask() 

) 
A function that generates particles at the locations of the support points of a DoFHandler, possibly based on a different Triangulation with respect to the one used to construct the ParticleHandler. The total number of particles that is added to the particle_handler
object is the number of dofs of the DoFHandler that is passed that are within the triangulation and whose components are within the ComponentMask. This function uses insert_global_particles and consequently may induce considerable mpi communication overhead.
This function is used in step70.
[in]  dof_handler  A DOF handler that may live on another triangulation that is used to establsh the positions of the particles. 
[in]  global_bounding_boxes  A vector that contains all the bounding boxes for all processors. This vector can be established by first using 'GridTools::compute_mesh_predicate_bounding_box()' and gathering all the bounding boxes using 'Utilities::MPI::all_gather(). 
[in,out]  particle_handler  The particle handler that will take ownership of the generated particles. The particles that are generated will be appended to the particles currently owned by the particle handler. 
[in]  mapping  An optional mapping object that is used to map the DOF locations. If no mapping is provided a MappingQ1 is assumed. 
[in]  components  Component mask that decides which subset of the support points of the dof_handler are used to generate the particles.

ParticleHandler< dim, spacedim > &  particle_handler,  
const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping 

) 
A function that generates particles at the locations of the quadrature points of a Triangulation. This Triangulation can be different from the one used to construct the ParticleHandler. The total number of particles that is added to the particle_handler
object is the number of cells multiplied by the number of particle reference locations which are generally constructed using a quadrature. This function uses insert_global_particles and consequently may induce considerable mpi communication overhead.
[in]  triangulation  The possibly nonmatching triangulation which is used to insert the particles into the domain. 
[in]  quadrature  A quadrature whose reference location are used to insert the particles within the cells. 
[in]  global_bounding_boxes  A vector that contains all the bounding boxes for all processors. This vector can be established by first using 'GridTools::compute_mesh_predicate_bounding_box()' and gathering all the bounding boxes using 'Utilities::MPI::all_gather. 
[in,out]  particle_handler  The particle handler that will take ownership of the generated particles. 
[in]  mapping  An optional mapping object that is used to map the quadrature locations. If no mapping is provided a MappingQ1 is assumed.
