Detailed Description

template<typename number>
class Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >

Definition of piecewise 1D polynomials for the unit interval. This space allows the description of interpolating polynomials on parts of the unit interval, similarly to the definition of finite element basis functions on the subdivided elements. This primary purpose of this class is to allow constructing FE_Q_iso_Q1 elements that put additional degrees of freedom into an equivalent of a refined mesh instead of higher order polynomials, which is useful when using mixed finite elements.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ PiecewisePolynomial()

template<typename number>
Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::PiecewisePolynomial ( const Polynomial< number > &  coefficients_on_interval,
const unsigned int  n_intervals,
const unsigned int  interval,
const bool  spans_next_interval 
)

Constructor for Lagrange polynomial on an interval that is a subset of the unit interval. It uses a polynomial description that is scaled to the size of the subinterval compared to the unit interval, the total number of intervals (subdivisions), the current index of the interval as well as if the polynomial spans onto the next interval (e.g., if it lives on two neighboring intervals).

If the number of intervals is one, the piecewise polynomial behaves exactly like a usual polynomial.

Member Function Documentation

◆ value() [1/3]

template<typename number>
number Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::value ( const number  x) const
inline

Return the value of this polynomial at the given point, evaluating the underlying polynomial. The polynomial evaluates to zero when outside of the given interval (and possible the next one to the right when it spans over that range).

Definition at line 193 of file polynomials_piecewise.h.

◆ value() [2/3]

template<typename number>
void Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::value ( const number  x,
std::vector< number > &  values 
) const

Return the values and the derivatives of the Polynomial at point x. values[i], i=0,...,values.size()-1 includes the ith derivative. The number of derivatives to be computed is thus determined by the size of the vector passed.

Note that all the derivatives evaluate to zero at the border between intervals (assuming exact arithmetics) in the interior of the unit interval, as there is no unique gradient value in that case for a piecewise polynomial. This is not always desired (e.g., when evaluating jumps of gradients on the element boundary), but it is the user's responsibility to avoid evaluation at these points when it does not make sense.

Definition at line 44 of file polynomials_piecewise.cc.

◆ value() [3/3]

template<typename number>
void Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::value ( const number  x,
const unsigned int  n_derivatives,
number *  values 
) const

Return the values and the derivatives of the Polynomial at point x. values[i], i=0,...,n_derivatives includes the ith derivative.The number of derivatives to be computed is determined by n_derivatives and values has to provide sufficient space for n_derivatives + 1 values.

Note that all the derivatives evaluate to zero at the border between intervals (assuming exact arithmetics) in the interior of the unit interval, as there is no unique gradient value in that case for a piecewise polynomial. This is not always desired (e.g., when evaluating jumps of gradients on the element boundary), but it is the user's responsibility to avoid evaluation at these points when it does not make sense.

Definition at line 56 of file polynomials_piecewise.cc.

◆ degree()

template<typename number >
unsigned int Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::degree ( ) const
inline

Degree of the polynomial. This is the degree of the underlying base polynomial.

Definition at line 184 of file polynomials_piecewise.h.

◆ serialize()

template<typename number >
template<class Archive >
void Polynomials::PiecewisePolynomial< number >::serialize ( Archive &  ar,
const unsigned int  version 
)
inline

Write or read the data of this object to or from a stream for the purpose of serialization.

Definition at line 235 of file polynomials_piecewise.h.
