This class describes mappings that can be expressed in terms of charts. Specifically, this class with its template arguments describes a chart of dimension chartdim, which is part of a Manifold<dim,spacedim> and is used in an object of type Triangulation<dim,spacedim>: It specializes a Manifold of dimension chartdim embedded in a manifold of dimension spacedim, for which you have explicit pull_back() and push_forward() transformations. Its use is explained in great detail in step53.
This is a helper class which is useful when you have an explicit map from an Euclidean space of dimension chartdim to an Euclidean space of dimension spacedim which represents your manifold, i.e., when your manifold \(\mathcal{M}\) can be represented by a map
\[ F: \mathcal{B} \subset R^{\text{chartdim}} \mapsto \mathcal{M} \subset R^{\text{spacedim}} \]
(the push_forward() function) and that admits the inverse transformation
\[ F^{1}: \mathcal{M} \subset R^{\text{spacedim}} \mapsto \mathcal{B} \subset R^{\text{chartdim}} \]
(the pull_back() function).
The get_new_point() function of the ChartManifold class is implemented by calling the pull_back() method for all surrounding_points
, computing their weighted average in the chartdim Euclidean space, and calling the push_forward() method with the resulting point, i.e.,
\[ \mathbf x^{\text{new}} = F(\sum_i w_i F^{1}(\mathbf x_i)). \]
Derived classes are required to implement the push_forward() and the pull_back() methods. All other functions (with the exception of the push_forward_gradient() function, see below) that are required by mappings will then be provided by this class.
In order to compute vectors that are tangent to the manifold (for example, tangent to a surface embedded in higher dimensional space, or simply the three unit vectors of \({\mathbb R}^3\)), one needs to also have access to the gradient of the pushforward function \(F\). The gradient is the matrix \((\nabla F)_{ij}=\partial_j F_i\), where we take the derivative with regard to the chartdim reference coordinates on the flat Euclidean space in which \(\mathcal B\) is located. In other words, at a point \(\mathbf x\), \(\nabla F(\mathbf x)\) is a matrix of size spacedim
times chartdim
.
Only the ChartManifold::get_tangent_vector() function uses the gradient of the pushforward, but only a subset of all finite element codes actually require the computation of tangent vectors. Consequently, while derived classes need to implement the abstract virtual push_forward() and pull_back() functions of this class, they do not need to implement the virtual push_forward_gradient() function. Rather, that function has a default implementation (and consequently is not abstract, therefore not forcing derived classes to overload it), but the default implementation clearly can not compute anything useful and therefore simply triggers and exception.
The dimension arguments chartdim
, dim
and spacedim
must satisfy the following relationships:
However, there is no a priori relationship between dim
and chartdim
. For example, if you want to describe a mapping for an edge (a 1d object) in a 2d triangulation embedded in 3d space, you could do so by parameterizing it via a line
\[ F: [0,1] \rightarrow {\mathbb R}^3 \]
in which case chartdim
is 1. On the other hand, there is no reason why one can't describe this as a mapping
\[ F: {\mathbb R}^3 \rightarrow {\mathbb R}^3 \]
in such a way that the line \([0,1]\times \{0\}\times \{0\}\) happens to be mapped onto the edge in question. Here, chartdim
is 3. This may seem cumbersome but satisfies the requirements of an invertible function \(F\) just fine as long as it is possible to get from the edge to the pullback space and then back again. Finally, given that we are dealing with a 2d triangulation in 3d, one will often have a mapping from, say, the 2d unit square or unit disk to the domain in 3d space, and the edge in question may simply be the mapped edge of the unit domain in 2d space. In this case, chartdim
is 2.

ChartManifold< dim, spacedim, chartdim >::ChartManifold  (  const Tensor< 1, chartdim > &  periodicity = Tensor<1,chartdim>()  ) 
Constructor. The optional argument can be used to specify the periodicity of the chartdimdimensional manifold (one period per direction). A periodicity value of zero means that along that direction there is no periodicity. By default no periodicity is assumed.
Periodicity affects the way a middle point is computed. It is assumed that if two points are more than half period distant, then the distance should be computed by crossing the periodicity boundary, i.e., then the average is computed by adding a full period to the sum of the two. For example, if along direction 0 we have 2*pi periodicity, then the average of (2*pieps) and (eps) is not pi, but 2*pi (or zero), since, on the manifold, these two points are at distance 2*eps and not (2*pieps)

Compute a new set of points that interpolate between the given points surrounding_points
. weights
is a table with as many columns as surrounding_points.size()
. The number of rows in weights
must match the length of new_points
.
The implementation of this function first transforms the surrounding_points
to the chart space by calling pull_back(). Then, new points are computed on the chart by usual interpolation according to the given weights
, which are finally transformed to the image space by push_forward().
This implementation can be much more efficient for computing multiple new points from the same surrounding points than separate calls to get_new_point() in case the pull_back() operation is expensive. This is because pull_back() is only called once for the surrounding points and the interpolation is done for all given weights using this set of points. Often, pull_back() is also more expensive than push_forward() because the former might involve some kind of Newton iteration in nontrivial manifolds.

virtual 
Given a point in the chartdim dimensional Euclidean space, this method returns the derivatives of the function \(F\) that maps from the chartdimdimensional to the spacedimdimensional space. In other words, it is a matrix of size \(\text{spacedim}\times\text{chartdim}\).
This function is used in the computations required by the get_tangent_vector() function. Since not all users of the Manifold class interface will require calling that function, the current function is implemented but will trigger an exception whenever called. This allows derived classes to avoid implementing the push_forward_gradient function if this functionality is not needed in the user program.

Return a vector that, at \(\mathbf x_1\), is tangential to the geodesic that connects two points \(\mathbf x_1,\mathbf x_2\). See the documentation of the Manifold class and of Manifold::get_tangent_vector() for a more detailed description.
For the current class, we assume that this geodesic is the image under the push_forward() operation of a straight line of the preimages of x1
and x2
(where preimages are computed by pulling back the locations x1
and x2
). In other words, if these preimages are \(\xi_1=F^{1}(\mathbf x_1), \xi_2=F^{1}(\mathbf x_2)\), then the geodesic in preimage (the chartdimdimensional Euclidean) space is
\begin{align*} \zeta(t) &= \xi_1 + t (\xi_2\xi_1) \\ &= F^{1}(\mathbf x_1) + t\left[F^{1}(\mathbf x_2) F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right] \end{align*}
In image space, i.e., in the space in which we operate, this leads to the curve
\begin{align*} \mathbf s(t) &= F(\zeta(t)) \\ &= F(\xi_1 + t (\xi_2\xi_1)) \\ &= F\left(F^{1}(\mathbf x_1) + t\left[F^{1}(\mathbf x_2) F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right]\right). \end{align*}
What the current function is supposed to return is \(\mathbf s'(0)\). By the chain rule, this is equal to
\begin{align*} \mathbf s'(0) &= \frac{d}{dt}\left. F\left(F^{1}(\mathbf x_1) + t\left[F^{1}(\mathbf x_2) F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right]\right) \right_{t=0} \\ &= \nabla_\xi F\left(F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right) \left[F^{1}(\mathbf x_2) F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right]. \end{align*}
This formula may then have to be slightly modified by considering any periodicity that was assumed in the call to the constructor.
Thus, the computation of tangent vectors also requires the implementation of derivatives \(\nabla_\xi F(\xi)\) of the pushforward mapping. Here, \(F^{1}(\mathbf x_2)F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\) is a chartdimdimensional vector, and \(\nabla_\xi F\left(F^{1}(\mathbf x_1)\right) = \nabla_\xi F\left(\xi_1\right)\) is a spacedimtimeschartdimdimensional matrix. Consequently, and as desired, the operation results in a spacedimdimensional vector.
x1  The first point that describes the geodesic, and the one at which the "direction" is to be evaluated. 
x2  The second point that describes the geodesic.

private 
The sub_manifold object is used to compute the average of the points in the chart coordinates system.
In an ideal world, it would have type FlatManifold<dim,chartdim>. However, this would instantiate cases where dim>spacedim, which leads to invalid situations. We instead use <chartdim,chartdim>, which is (i) always valid, and (ii) does not matter at all since the first (dim) argument of manifolds is, in fact, ignored as far as manifold functionality is concerned.
