Detailed Description

template<int dim>
class PolynomialsNedelec< dim >

This class implements the first family Hcurl-conforming, vector-valued polynomials, proposed by J.-C. Nédélec in 1980 (Numer. Math. 35).

The Nédélec polynomials are constructed such that the curl is in the tensor product polynomial space Qk. Therefore, the polynomial order of each component must be one order higher in the corresponding two directions, yielding the polynomial spaces (Qk,k+1, Qk+1,k) and (Qk,k+1,k+1, Qk+1,k,k+1, Qk+1,k+1,k) in 2D and 3D, resp.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ PolynomialsNedelec()

template<int dim>
PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::PolynomialsNedelec ( const unsigned int  k)

Constructor. Creates all basis functions for Nédélec polynomials of given degree.

  • k: the degree of the Nédélec space, which is the degree of the largest tensor product polynomial space Qk contained.

Member Function Documentation

◆ evaluate()

template<int dim>
void PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::evaluate ( const Point< dim > &  unit_point,
std::vector< Tensor< 1, dim >> &  values,
std::vector< Tensor< 2, dim >> &  grads,
std::vector< Tensor< 3, dim >> &  grad_grads,
std::vector< Tensor< 4, dim >> &  third_derivatives,
std::vector< Tensor< 5, dim >> &  fourth_derivatives 
) const

Compute the value and the first and second derivatives of each Nédélec polynomial at unit_point.

The size of the vectors must either be zero or equal n(). In the first case, the function will not compute these values.

If you need values or derivatives of all tensor product polynomials then use this function, rather than using any of the compute_value, compute_grad or compute_grad_grad functions, see below, in a loop over all tensor product polynomials.

◆ name()

template<int dim>
std::string PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::name ( ) const

Return the name of the space, which is Nedelec.

Implements TensorPolynomialsBase< dim >.

Definition at line 121 of file polynomials_nedelec.h.

◆ n_polynomials()

template<int dim>
unsigned int PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::n_polynomials ( const unsigned int  degree)

Return the number of polynomials in the space N(degree) without requiring to build an object of PolynomialsNedelec. This is required by the FiniteElement classes.

Definition at line 1489 of file

◆ clone()

template<int dim>
std::unique_ptr< TensorPolynomialsBase< dim > > PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::clone ( ) const

A sort of virtual copy constructor, this function returns a copy of the polynomial space object. Derived classes need to override the function here in this base class and return an object of the same type as the derived class.

Some places in the library, for example the constructors of FE_PolyTensor, need to make copies of polynomial spaces without knowing their exact type. They do so through this function.

Implements TensorPolynomialsBase< dim >.

◆ create_polynomials()

template<int dim>
std::vector< std::vector< Polynomials::Polynomial< double > > > PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::create_polynomials ( const unsigned int  k)

A static member function that creates the polynomial space we use to initialize the polynomial_space member variable.

Definition at line 36 of file

◆ n()

template<int dim>
unsigned int TensorPolynomialsBase< dim >::n ( ) const

Return the number of polynomials.

Definition at line 155 of file tensor_polynomials_base.h.

◆ degree()

template<int dim>
unsigned int TensorPolynomialsBase< dim >::degree ( ) const

Return the highest polynomial degree of polynomials represented by this class. A derived class may override this if its value is different from my_degree.

Definition at line 164 of file tensor_polynomials_base.h.

Member Data Documentation

◆ polynomial_space

template<int dim>
const AnisotropicPolynomials<dim> PolynomialsNedelec< dim >::polynomial_space

An object representing the polynomial space for a single component. We can re-use it by rotating the coordinates of the evaluation point.
