Detailed Description

template<int dim>
class QSimplex< dim >

Given an arbitrary quadrature formula, return one that chops the quadrature points above the hyper-plane defined by \(\sum_i x_i = 1\). In other words, it extracts those quadrature points from the base formula that satisfy \(\sum_i (\mathbf x_q)_i \le 1+10^{-12}\)."

In general the resulting quadrature is not very useful, unless the quadrature you started from has been constructed specifically to integrate over triangles or tetrahedra. This class only ensures that the resulting quadrature formula only has quadrature points in the reference simplex or on its boundary.

No transformation is applied to the weights, and the weights referring to points that live outside the reference simplex are simply discarded.

The main use of this quadrature formula is not to chop tensor product quadratures. Ideally you should pass to this class a quadrature formula constructed directly using points and weights in the reference simplex, capable of integrating on triangles or tetrahedra.

For finite elements based on quadrilaterals and hexahedra, a QSimplex quadrature formula is not very useful on its own. This class is typically used in conjunction with other classes, like QSplit, to patch the reference element using several QSimplex quadrature formulas.

Such quadrature formulas are useful to integrate functions with singularities at certain points, or functions that present jumps along a co-dimension one surface inside the reference element, like in the extended finite element method (XFEM).

Member Function Documentation

template<int dim>
Quadrature< dim > QSimplex< dim >::compute_affine_transformation ( const std::array< Point< dim >, dim+1 > &  vertices) const

Return an affine transformation of this quadrature, that can be used to integrate on the simplex identified by vertices.

Both the quadrature point locations and the weights are transformed, so that you can effectively use the resulting quadrature to integrate on the simplex.

The transformation is defined as

\[ x = v_0 + B \hat x \]

where the matrix \(B\) is given by \(B_{ij} = v[j][i]-v[0][i]\).

The weights are scaled with the absolute value of the determinant of \(B\), that is \(J := |\text{det}(B)|\). If \(J\) is zero, an empty quadrature is returned. This may happen, in two dimensions, if the three vertices are aligned, or in three dimensions if the four vertices are on the same plane.
