Manifold description for a spherical space coordinate system.
You can use this Manifold object to describe any sphere, circle, hypersphere or hyperdisc in two or three dimensions. This manifold can be used as a codimension one manifold descriptor of a spherical surface embedded in a higher dimensional space, or as a codimension zero manifold descriptor for a body with positive volume, provided that the center of the spherical space is excluded from the domain. An example for the use of this function would be in the description of a hypershell or hyperball geometry, for example after creating a coarse mesh using GridGenerator::hyper_ball(). (However, it is worth mentioning that generating a good mesh for a disk or ball is complicated and requires addition steps. See the "Possibilities for extensions" section of step6 for an extensive discussion of how one would construct such meshes and what one needs to do for it.)
The two template arguments match the meaning of the two template arguments in Triangulation<dim, spacedim>, however this Manifold can be used to describe both thin and thick objects, and the behavior is identical when dim <= spacedim, i.e., the functionality of SphericalManifold<2,3> is identical to SphericalManifold<3,3>.
While PolarManifold reflects the usual notion of polar coordinates, it may not be suitable for domains that contain either the north or south poles. Consider for instance the pair of points \(x_1=(1,\pi/3,0)\) and \(x_2=(1,\pi/3,\pi)\) in polar coordinates (lying on the surface of a sphere with radius one, on a parallel at height \(\pi/3\)). In this case connecting the points with a straight line in polar coordinates would take the long road around the globe, without passing through the north pole.
These two points would be connected (using a PolarManifold) by the curve
\begin{align*} s: [0,1] & \rightarrow & \mathbb S^3 \\ t & \mapsto & (1,\pi/3,0) + (0,0,t\pi) \end{align*}
This curve is not a geodesic on the sphere, and it is not how we would connect those two points. A better curve, would be the one passing through the North pole:
\[ s(t) = x_1 \cos(\alpha(t)) + \kappa \times x_1 \sin(\alpha(t)) + \kappa ( \kappa \cdot x_1) (1\cos(\alpha(t))). \]
where \(\kappa = \frac{x_1 \times x_2}{\Vert x_1 \times x_2 \Vert}\) and \(\alpha(t) = t \cdot \arccos(x_1 \cdot x_2)\) for \(t\in[0,1]\). Indeed, this is a geodesic, and it is the natural choice when connecting points on the surface of the sphere. In the examples above, the PolarManifold class implements the first way of connecting two points on the surface of a sphere, while SphericalManifold implements the second way, i.e., this Manifold connects points using geodesics. If more than two points are involved through a SphericalManifold::get_new_points() call, a socalled spherical average is used where the final point minimizes the weighted distance to all other points via geodesics.
In particular, this class implements a Manifold that joins any two points in space by first projecting them onto the surface of a sphere with unit radius, then connecting them with a geodesic, and finally rescaling the final radius so that the resulting one is the weighted average of the starting radii. This Manifold is identical to PolarManifold in dimension two, while for dimension three it returns points that are more uniformly distributed on the sphere, and it is invariant with respect to rotations of the coordinate system, therefore avoiding the problems that PolarManifold has at the poles. Notice, in particular, that computing tangent vectors at the poles with a PolarManifold is not well defined, while it is perfectly fine with this class.
For mathematical reasons, it is impossible to construct a unique map of a sphere using only geodesic curves, and therefore, using this class with MappingManifold is discouraged. If you use this Manifold to describe the geometry of a sphere, you should use MappingQ as the underlying mapping, and not MappingManifold.
This Manifold can be used only on geometries where a ball with finite radius is removed from the center. Indeed, the center is a singular point for this manifold, and if you try to connect two points across the center, they would travel on spherical coordinates, avoiding the center.
The ideal geometry for this Manifold is a hyper shell. If you plan to use this Manifold on a hyper ball, you have to make sure you do not attach this Manifold to the cell containing the center. It is advisable to combine this class with TransfiniteInterpolationManifold to ensure a smooth transition from a curved shape to the straight coordinate system in the center of the ball. (See also the extensive discussion in step65.)

inherited 
Type keeping information about the normals at the vertices of a face of a cell. Thus, there are GeometryInfo<dim>::vertices_per_face
normal vectors, that define the tangent spaces of the boundary at the vertices. Note that the vectors stored in this object are not required to be normalized, nor to actually point outward, as one often will only want to check for orthogonality to define the tangent plane; if a function requires the normals to be normalized, then it must do so itself.
For obvious reasons, this type is not useful in 1d.

overridevirtual 
Return the normal vector to a face embedded in this manifold, at the point p. It is not required that the normals actually point outward from the domain even if the face iterator given points to a face on the boundary of the domain. If p is not in fact on the surface, but only closeby, try to return something reasonable, for example the normal vector at the surface point closest to p. (The point p will in fact not normally lie on the actual surface, but rather be a quadrature point mapped by some polynomial mapping; the mapped surface, however, will not usually coincide with the actual surface.)
This function only makes sense if dim==spacedim because otherwise there is no unique normal vector but in fact a (spacedimdim+1)dimensional tangent space of vectors that are all both normal to the face and normal to the dimdimensional surface that lives in spacedimdimensional space. For example, think of a twodimensional mesh that covers a twodimensional surface in threedimensional space. In that case, each face (edge) is onedimensional, and there are two linearly independent vectors that are both normal to the edge: one is normal to the edge and tangent to the surface (intuitively, that would be the one that points from the current cell to the neighboring one, if the surface was locally flat), and the other one is rooted in the edge but points perpendicular to the surface (which is also perpendicular to the edge that lives within the surface). Thus, because there are no obviously correct semantics for this function if spacedim is greater than dim, the function will simply throw an error in that situation.
The face iterator gives an indication which face this function is supposed to compute the normal vector for. This is useful if the boundary of the domain is composed of different nondifferential pieces (for example when using the FlatManifold class to approximate a geometry that is completely described by the coarse mesh, with piecewise (bi)linear components between the vertices, but where the boundary may have a kink at the vertices itself).

virtualinherited 
Given a point which lies close to the given manifold, it modifies it and projects it to manifold itself.
This class is used by the default implementation of the function get_new_point() and should be implemented by derived classes. The default implementation simply throws an exception if called.
If your manifold is simple, you could implement this function only, and the default behavior should work out of the box.

virtualinherited 
Backward compatibility interface. Return the point which shall become the new middle vertex of the two children of a regular line. In 2d, this line is a line at the boundary, while in 3d, it is bounding a face at the boundary (the lines therefore is also on the boundary).
The default implementation of this function passes its argument to the Manifolds::get_default_points_and_weights() function, and then calls the Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() function. User derived classes can overload Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() or Manifold<dim,spacedim>::project_to_manifold(), which is called by the default implementation of Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point().

virtualinherited 
Backward compatibility interface. Return the point which shall become the common point of the four children of a quad at the boundary in three or more spatial dimensions. This function therefore is only useful in at least three dimensions and should not be called for lower dimensions.
This function is called after the four lines bounding the given quad
are refined, so you may want to use the information provided by quad>line(i)>child(j)
, i=0...3
, j=0,1
.
The default implementation of this function passes its argument to the Manifolds::get_default_points_and_weights() function, and then calls the Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() function. User derived classes can overload Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() or Manifold<dim,spacedim>::project_to_manifold(), which is called by the default implementation of Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point().

Backward compatibility interface. Return the point which shall become the common point of the eight children of a hex in three or spatial dimensions. This function therefore is only useful in at least three dimensions and should not be called for lower dimensions.

are refined, so you may want to use the information provided by hex>quad(i)>line(j)>child(k)

The default implementation of this function passes its argument to the Manifolds::get_default_points_and_weights() function, and then calls the Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() function. User derived classes can overload Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point() or Manifold<dim,spacedim>::project_to_manifold(), which is called by the default implementation of Manifold<dim,spacedim>::get_new_point().

Backward compatibility interface. Depending on dim=2
or dim=3
this function calls the get_new_point_on_line or the get_new_point_on_quad function. It throws an exception for dim=1

Backward compatibility interface. Depending on dim=1

this function calls the get_new_point_on_line, get_new_point_on_quad or the get_new_point_on_hex function. This wrapper allows dimension independent programming.

virtualinherited 
Compute the normal vectors to the boundary at each vertex of the given face embedded in the Manifold. It is not required that the normal vectors be normed somehow. Neither is it required that the normals actually point outward.
This function is needed to compute data for C1 mappings. The default implementation calls normal_vector() on each vertex.
Note that when computing normal vectors at a vertex where the boundary is not differentiable, you have to make sure that you compute the onesided limits, i.e. limit with respect to points inside the given face.

inlineinherited 
Read or write the data of this object to or from a stream for the purpose of serialization using the BOOST serialization library.
This function does not actually serialize any of the member variables of this class. The reason is that what this class stores is only who subscribes to this object, but who does so at the time of storing the contents of this object does not necessarily have anything to do with who subscribes to the object when it is restored. Consequently, we do not want to overwrite the subscribers at the time of restoring, and then there is no reason to write the subscribers out in the first place.

privatenoexceptinherited 
Check that there are no objects subscribing to this object. If this check passes then it is safe to destroy the current object. It this check fails then this function will either abort or print an error message to deallog (by using the AssertNothrow mechanism), but will not throw an exception.
