double GridTools::diameter  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria  ) 
Return the diameter of a triangulation. The diameter is computed using only the vertices, i.e. if the diameter should be larger than the maximal distance between boundary vertices due to a higher order mapping, then this function will not catch this.
Definition at line 76 of file grid_tools.cc.
double GridTools::volume  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria, 
const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = (StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping) 

) 
Compute the volume (i.e. the dimdimensional measure) of the triangulation. We compute the measure using the integral \(\sum_K \int_K 1 \; dx\) where \(K\) are the cells of the given triangulation. The integral is approximated via quadrature for which we need the mapping argument.
If the triangulation is a dimdimensional one embedded in a higher dimensional space of dimension spacedim, then the value returned is the dimdimensional measure. For example, for a twodimensional triangulation in threedimensional space, the value returned is the area of the surface so described. (This obviously makes sense since the spacedimdimensional measure of a dimdimensional triangulation would always be zero if dim < spacedim.
This function also works for objects of type parallel::distributed::Triangulation, in which case the function is a collective operation.
tria  The triangulation. 
mapping  An optional argument used to denote the mapping that should be used when describing whether cells are bounded by straight or curved faces. The default is to use a \(Q_1\) mapping, which corresponds to straight lines bounding the cells. 
Definition at line 134 of file grid_tools.cc.
double GridTools::minimal_cell_diameter  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation, 
const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = (StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping) 

) 
Return an approximation of the diameter of the smallest active cell of a triangulation. See step24 for an example of use of this function.
Notice that, even if you pass a nontrivial mapping, the returned value is computed only using information on the vertices of the triangulation, possibly transformed by the mapping. While this is accurate most of the times, it may fail to give the correct result when the triangulation contains very distorted cells.
Definition at line 3254 of file grid_tools.cc.
double GridTools::maximal_cell_diameter  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation, 
const Mapping< dim, spacedim > &  mapping = (StaticMappingQ1<dim, spacedim>::mapping) 

) 
Return an approximation of the diameter of the largest active cell of a triangulation.
Notice that, even if you pass a nontrivial mapping to this function, the returned value is computed only using information on the vertices of the triangulation, possibly transformed by the mapping. While this is accurate most of the times, it may fail to give the correct result when the triangulation contains very distorted cells.
Definition at line 3282 of file grid_tools.cc.
double GridTools::cell_measure  (  const std::vector< Point< dim >> &  all_vertices, 
const unsigned int(&)  vertex_indices[GeometryInfo< dim >::vertices_per_cell]  
) 
Given a list of vertices (typically obtained using Triangulation::get_vertices) as the first, and a list of vertex indices that characterize a single cell as the second argument, return the measure (area, volume) of this cell. If this is a real cell, then you can get the same result using cell>measure()
, but this function also works for cells that do not exist except that you make it up by naming its vertices from the list.
double GridTools::cell_measure  (  const T &  , 
...  
) 
A version of the last function that can accept input for nonzero codimension cases. This function only exists to aid generic programming and calling it will just raise an exception.
Vector< double > GridTools::compute_aspect_ratio_of_cells  (  const Triangulation< dim > &  triangulation, 
const Mapping< dim > &  mapping,  
const Quadrature< dim > &  quadrature  
) 
Computes an aspect ratio measure for all locallyowned active cells and fills a vector with one entry per cell, given a triangulation
and mapping
. The size of the vector that is returned equals the number of active cells. The vector contains zero for non locallyowned cells. The aspect ratio of a cell is defined as the ratio of the maximum to minimum singular value of the Jacobian, taking the maximum over all quadrature points of a quadrature rule specified via quadrature
. For example, for the special case of rectangular elements in 2d with dimensions \(a\) and \(b\) ( \(a \geq b\)), this function returns the usual aspect ratio definition \(a/b\). The above definition using singular values is a generalization to arbitrarily deformed elements. This function is intended to be used for \(d=2,3\) space dimensions, but it can also be used for \(d=1\) returning a value of 1.

double GridTools::compute_maximum_aspect_ratio  (  const Triangulation< dim > &  triangulation, 
const Mapping< dim > &  mapping,  
const Quadrature< dim > &  quadrature  
) 
Computes the maximum aspect ratio by taking the maximum over all cells.
Definition at line 486 of file grid_tools.cc.
BoundingBox< spacedim > GridTools::compute_bounding_box  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation  ) 
Compute the smallest box containing the entire triangulation.
If the input triangulation is a parallel::distributed::Triangulation
, then each processor will compute a bounding box enclosing all locally owned, ghost, and artificial cells. In the case of a domain without curved boundaries, these bounding boxes will all agree between processors because the union of the areas occupied by artificial and ghost cells equals the union of the areas occupied by the cells that other processors own. However, if the domain has curved boundaries, this is no longer the case. The bounding box returned may be appropriate for the current processor, but different from the bounding boxes computed on other processors.

Point<Iterator::AccessorType::space_dimension> GridTools::project_to_object  (  const Iterator &  object, 
const Point< Iterator::AccessorType::space_dimension > &  trial_point  
) 
Return the point on the geometrical object object
closest to the given point trial_point
. For example, if object
is a onedimensional line or edge, then the returned point will be a point on the geodesic that connects the vertices as the manifold associated with the object sees it (i.e., the geometric line may be curved if it lives in a higher dimensional space). If the iterator points to a quadrilateral in a higher dimensional space, then the returned point lies within the convex hull of the vertices of the quad as seen by the associated manifold.

If your manifold supports it then the specialized function Manifold::project_to_manifold() may perform better.std::tuple< std::vector< Point< spacedim > >, std::vector< CellData< dim > >, SubCellData > GridTools::get_coarse_mesh_description  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria  ) 
Return the arrays that define the coarse mesh of a Triangulation. This function is the inverse of Triangulation::create_triangulation().
The return value is a tuple with the vector of vertices, the vector of cells, and a SubCellData structure. The latter contains additional information about faces and lines.
This function is useful in cases where one needs to deconstruct a Triangulation or manipulate the numbering of the vertices in some way: an example is GridGenerator::merge_triangulations().

void GridTools::delete_unused_vertices  (  std::vector< Point< spacedim >> &  vertices, 
std::vector< CellData< dim >> &  cells,  
SubCellData &  subcelldata  
) 
Remove vertices that are not referenced by any of the cells. This function is called by all GridIn::read_*
functions to eliminate vertices that are listed in the input files but are not used by the cells in the input file. While these vertices should not be in the input from the beginning, they sometimes are, most often when some cells have been removed by hand without wanting to update the vertex lists, as they might be lengthy.
This function is called by all GridIn::read_*
functions as the triangulation class requires them to be called with used vertices only. This is so, since the vertices are copied verbatim by that class, so we have to eliminate unused vertices beforehand.
Not implemented for the codimension one case.

const double  tol = 1e12 

) 
Remove vertices that are duplicated, due to the input of a structured grid, for example. If these vertices are not removed, the faces bounded by these vertices become part of the boundary, even if they are in the interior of the mesh.
This function is called by some GridIn::read_*
functions. Only the vertices with indices in considered_vertices
are tested for equality. This speeds up the algorithm, which is quadratic and thus quite slow to begin with. However, if you wish to consider all vertices, simply pass an empty vector. In that case, the function fills considered_vertices
with all vertices.
Two vertices are considered equal if their difference in each coordinate direction is less than tol
.

void GridTools::transform  (  const Transformation &  transformation, 
Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation  
) 
Transform the vertices of the given triangulation by applying the function object provided as first argument to all its vertices.
The transformation given as argument is used to transform each vertex. Its respective type has to offer a functionlike syntax, i.e. the predicate is either an object of a type that has an operator()
, or it is a pointer to the function. In either case, argument and return value have to be of type Point<spacedim>
.
This function is used in the "Possibilities for extensions" section of step38. It is also used in step49 and step53.
void GridTools::shift  (  const Tensor< 1, spacedim > &  shift_vector,

Shift each vertex of the triangulation by the given shift vector. This function uses the transform() function above, so the requirements on the triangulation stated there hold for this function as well.

void GridTools::rotate  (  const double  angle,

Rotate all vertices of the given twodimensional triangulation in counterclockwise sense around the origin of the coordinate system by the given angle (given in radians, rather than degrees). This function uses the transform() function above, so the requirements on the triangulation stated there hold for this function as well.

void GridTools::laplace_transform  (  const std::map< unsigned int, Point< dim >> &  new_points, 
Triangulation< dim > &  tria,  
const Function< dim, double > *  coefficient = nullptr , 

const bool  solve_for_absolute_positions = false 

) 
Transform the given triangulation smoothly to a different domain where, typically, each of the vertices at the boundary of the triangulation is mapped to the corresponding points in the new_points
map.
The unknown displacement field \(u_d(\mathbf x)\) in direction \(d\) is obtained from the minimization problem
\[ \min\, \int \frac{1}{2} c(\mathbf x) \mathbf \nabla u_d(\mathbf x) \cdot \mathbf \nabla u_d(\mathbf x) \,\rm d x \]
subject to prescribed constraints. The minimizer is obtained by solving the Laplace equation of the dim components of a displacement field that maps the current domain into one described by new_points
. Linear finite elements with four Gaussian quadrature points in each direction are used. The difference between the vertex positions specified in new_points
and their current value in tria
therefore represents the prescribed values of this displacement field at the boundary of the domain, or more precisely at all of those locations for which new_points
provides values (which may be at part of the boundary, or even in the interior of the domain). The function then evaluates this displacement field at each unconstrained vertex and uses it to place the mapped vertex where the displacement field locates it. Because the solution of the Laplace equation is smooth, this guarantees a smooth mapping from the old domain to the new one.
[in]  new_points  The locations where a subset of the existing vertices are to be placed. Typically, this would be a map from the vertex indices of all nodes on the boundary to their new locations, thus completely specifying the geometry of the mapped domain. However, it may also include interior points if necessary and it does not need to include all boundary vertices (although you then lose control over the exact shape of the mapped domain). 
[in,out]  tria  The Triangulation object. This object is changed in place, i.e., the previous locations of vertices are overwritten. 
[in]  coefficient  An optional coefficient for the Laplace problem. Larger values make cells less prone to deformation (effectively increasing their stiffness). The coefficient is evaluated in the coordinate system of the old, undeformed configuration of the triangulation as input, i.e., before the transformation is applied. Should this function be provided, sensible results can only be expected if all coefficients are positive. 
[in]  solve_for_absolute_positions  If set to true , the minimization problem is formulated with respect to the final vertex positions as opposed to their displacement. The two formulations are equivalent for the homogeneous problem (default value of coefficient ), but they result in very different mesh motion otherwise. Since in most cases one will be using a nonconstant coefficient in displacement formulation, the default value of this parameter is false . 
std::map< unsigned int, Point< spacedim > > GridTools::get_all_vertices_at_boundary  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria  )

void GridTools::scale  (  const double  scaling_factor, 
Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation  
) 
Scale the entire triangulation by the given factor. To preserve the orientation of the triangulation, the factor must be positive.
This function uses the transform() function above, so the requirements on the triangulation stated there hold for this function as well.

void GridTools::distort_random  (  const double  factor, 
Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation,

) 
Distort the given triangulation by randomly moving around all the vertices of the grid. The direction of movement of each vertex is random, while the length of the shift vector has a value of factor
times the minimal length of the active edges adjacent to this vertex. Note that factor
should obviously be well below 0.5
.
If keep_boundary
is set to true
(which is the default), then boundary vertices are not moved.
Distort a triangulation in some random way.

void GridTools::remove_hanging_nodes  (  Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria, 
const bool  isotropic = false , 

const unsigned int  max_iterations = 100 

) 
Remove hanging nodes from a grid. If the isotropic
parameter is set to false
(default) this function detects cells with hanging nodes and refines the neighbours in the direction that removes hanging nodes. If the isotropic
parameter is set to true
, the neighbours refinement is made in each directions. In order to remove all hanging nodes this procedure has to be repeated: this could require a large number of iterations. To avoid this a max number (max_iterations
) of iteration is provided.
Consider the following grid:
isotropic
== false
would return:
isotropic
== true
would return:
[in,out]  tria  Triangulation to refine. 
[in]  isotropic  If true refine cells in each directions, otherwise (default value) refine the cell in the direction that removes hanging node. 
[in]  max_iterations  At each step only closest cells to hanging nodes are refined. The code may require a lot of iterations to remove all hanging nodes. max_iterations is the maximum number of iteration allowed. If max_iterations == numbers::invalid_unsigned_int this function continues refining until there are no hanging nodes.

const double  max_ratio = 1.6180339887 , 

const unsigned int  max_iterations = 5 

) 
Refine a mesh anisotropically such that the resulting mesh is composed by cells with maximum ratio between dimensions less than max_ratio
. This procedure requires an algorithm that may not terminate. Consequently, it is possible to set a maximum number of iterations through the max_iterations
parameter.
Starting from a cell like this:
This function would return:
[in,out]  tria  Triangulation to refine. 
[in]  max_ratio  Maximum value allowed among the ratio between the dimensions of each cell. 
[in]  max_iterations  Maximum number of iterations allowed.

void GridTools::regularize_corner_cells  (  Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  tria, 
const double  limit_angle_fraction = .75 

) 
Analyze the boundary cells of a mesh, and if one cell is found at a corner position (with dim adjacent faces on the boundary), and its dimdimensional angle fraction exceeds limit_angle_fraction
, refine globally once, and replace the children of such cell with children where the corner is no longer offending the given angle fraction.
If no boundary cells exist with two adjacent faces on the boundary, then the triangulation is left untouched. If instead we do have cells with dim adjacent faces on the boundary, then the fraction between the dimdimensional solid angle and dim*pi/2 is checked against the parameter limit_angle_fraction
. If it is higher, the grid is refined once, and the children of the offending cell are replaced with some cells that instead respect the limit. After this process the triangulation is flattened, and all Manifold objects are restored as they were in the original triangulation.
An example is given by the following mesh, obtained by attaching a SphericalManifold to a mesh generated using GridGenerator::hyper_cube:
The four cells that were originally the corners of a square will give you some troubles during computations, as the jacobian of the transformation from the reference cell to those cells will go to zero, affecting the error constants of the finite element estimates.
Those cells have a corner with an angle that is very close to 180 degrees, i.e., an angle fraction very close to one.
The same code, adding a call to regularize_corner_cells:
generates a mesh that has a much better behaviour w.r.t. the jacobian of the Mapping:
This mesh is very similar to the one obtained by GridGenerator::hyper_ball. However, using GridTools::regularize_corner_cells one has the freedom to choose when to apply the regularization, i.e., one could in principle first refine a few times, and then call the regularize_corner_cells function:
This generates the following mesh:
The function is currently implemented only for dim = 2 and will throw an exception if called with dim = 3.
[in,out]  tria  Triangulation to regularize. 
[in]  limit_angle_fraction  Maximum ratio of angle or solid angle that is allowed for a corner element in the mesh.

The algorithm assumes it's easier to look for a point in the cell that was used previously. For this reason random points are, computationally speaking, the worst case scenario while points grouped by the cell to which they belong are the best case. Presorting points, trying to minimize distances between them, might make the function extremely faster.

) 
Given a cache
and a list of local_points
for each process, find the points lying on the locally owned part of the mesh and compute the quadrature rules for them. Distributed compute point locations is a function similar to GridTools::compute_point_locations but working for parallel::TriangulationBase objects and, unlike its serial version, also for a distributed triangulation (see parallel::distributed::Triangulation).
[in]  cache  a GridTools::Cache object 
[in]  local_points  the array of points owned by the current process. Every process can have a different array of points which can be empty and not contained within the locally owned part of the triangulation 
[in]  global_bboxes  a vector of vectors of bounding boxes; it describes the locally owned part of the mesh for each process. The bounding boxes describing which part of the mesh is locally owned by process with rank rk are contained in global_bboxes[rk]. The local description can be obtained from GridTools::compute_mesh_predicate_bounding_box; then the global one can be obtained using either GridTools::exchange_local_bounding_boxes or Utilities::MPI::all_gather 
The elements of the output tuple are:
qpoints
[i] the reference positions of all points that fall within the cell cells
[i] .points
[i][j] is the point in the real space corresponding. to qpoints
[i][j] . Notice points
are the points lying on the locally owned part of the mesh; thus these can be either copies of local_points
or points received from other processes i.e. local_points for other processesowners
[i][j] contains the rank of the process owning the point[i][j] (previous element of the tuple).The function uses the triangulation's mpi communicator: for this reason it throws an assert error if the Triangulation is not derived from parallel::TriangulationBase .
In a serial execution the first three elements of the tuple are the same as in GridTools::compute_point_locations .

) 
Return a map vertex index > Point<spacedim>
containing the used vertices of the given container
. The key of the returned map (i.e., the first element of the pair above) is the global index in the triangulation, whereas the value of each pair is the physical location of the corresponding vertex. The used vertices are obtained by looping over all cells, and querying for each cell where its vertices are through the (optional) mapping
argument.
In serial Triangulation objects and parallel::shared::Triangulation objects, the size of the returned map equals Triangulation::n_used_vertices() (not Triangulation::n_vertices()). Note that in parallel::distributed::Triangulation objects, only vertices in locally owned cells and ghost cells are returned, as for all other vertices their real location might not be known (e.g. for distributed computations using MappingQEulerian).
If you use the default mapping
, the returned map satisfies the following equality:
Notice that the above is not satisfied for mappings that change the location of vertices, like MappingQEulerian.

Find and return the index of the used vertex (or marked vertex) in a given mesh that is located closest to a given point.
This function uses the locations of vertices as stored in the triangulation. This is usually sufficient, unless you are using a Mapping that moves the vertices around (for example, MappingQEulerian).

The algorithm used in this function proceeds by first looking for the vertex located closest to the given point, see GridTools::find_closest_vertex(). Secondly, all adjacent cells to this vertex are found in the mesh, see GridTools::find_cells_adjacent_to_vertex(). Lastly, for each of these cells, the function tests whether the point is inside. This check is performed using the given mapping
argument to determine whether cells have straight or curved boundaries, and if the latter then how exactly they are curved.
If a point lies on the boundary of two or more cells, then the algorithm tries to identify the cell that is of highest refinement level.

marked_vertices
is specified the function should always be called inside a try block to catch the exception that the function might throw in the case it couldn't find an active cell surrounding the point. The motivation of using marked_vertices
is to cut down the search space of vertices if one has a priori knowledge of a collection of vertices that the point of interest may be close to. For instance, in the case when a parallel::shared::Triangulation is employed and we are looking for a point that we know is inside the locally owned part of the mesh, then it would make sense to pass an array for marked_vertices
that flags only the vertices of all locally owned active cells. If, however, the function throws an exception, then that would imply that the point lies outside locally owned active cells.Definition at line 569 of file grid_tools_dof_handlers.cc.

A variant of the previous find_active_cell_around_point() function that, instead of returning only the first matching cell, identifies all cells around a point for a given tolerance level tolerance
in terms of unit coordinates. More precisely, whenever the point returned by find_active_cell_around_point() is within the given tolerance from the surface of the unit cell, all corresponding neighbors are also identified, including the location of the point in unit coordinates on any of these cells.
This function is useful e.g. for discontinuous function spaces where, for the case the given point p
coincides with a vertex or an edge, several cells might hold independent values of the solution that get combined in some way in a user code.

Return a list of all descendants of the given cell that are active. For example, if the current cell is once refined but none of its children are any further refined, then the returned list will contain all its children.
If the current cell is already active, then the returned list is empty (because the cell has no children that may be active).

Extract the active cells around a given cell cell
and return them in the vector active_neighbors
. These neighbors are specifically the face neighbors of a cell or, if that neighbor is further refined, its active children that border on that face. On the other hand, the neighbors returned do not include cells that lie, for example, diagonally opposite to a vertex but are not face neighbors themselves. (In 3d, it also does not include cells that are adjacent to one of the edges of the current cell, but are not face neighbors.)

An example of a custom predicate is one that checks for a given material id
and we can then extract the layer of cells around this material with the following call:
Predicates that are frequently useful can be found in namespace IteratorFilters. For example, it is possible to extract a layer of cells around all of those cells with a given material id,
or around all cells with one of a set of active FE indices for an hp::DoFHandler
Note that in the last two examples we ensure that the predicate returns true only for locally owned cells. This means that the halo layer will not contain any artificial cells.

) 
Extract and return the set of active cells within a geometric distance of layer_thickness
around a subdomain (set of active cells) in the mesh
. Here, the "subdomain" consists of exactly all of those cells for which the predicate
returns true
.
The function first computes the cells that form the 'surface' of the subdomain that consists of all of the active cells for which the predicate is true. Using compute_bounding_box(), a bounding box is computed for this subdomain and extended by layer_thickness
. These cells are called interior subdomain boundary cells. The active cells with all of their vertices outside the extended bounding box are ignored. The cells that are inside the extended bounding box are then checked for their proximity to the interior subdomain boundary cells. This implies checking the distance between a pair of arbitrarily oriented cells, which is not trivial in general. To simplify this, the algorithm checks the distance between the two enclosing spheres of the cells. This will definitely result in slightly more cells being marked but also greatly simplifies the arithmetic complexity of the algorithm.
The image shows a mesh generated by subdivided_hyper_rectangle(). The cells are marked using three different colors. If the grey colored cells in the image are the cells for which the predicate is true, then the function compute_active_cell_layer_within_distance() will return a set of cell iterators corresponding to the cells colored in red. The red colored cells are the active cells that are within a given distance to the grey colored cells.

const bool  allow_merge = false , 

const unsigned int  max_boxes = numbers::invalid_unsigned_int 

) 
Compute a collection of bounding boxes so that all active cells for which the given predicate is true, are completely enclosed in at least one of the bounding boxes. Notice the cover is only guaranteed to contain all these active cells but it's not necessarily exact i.e. it can include a bigger area than their union.
For each cell at a given refinement level containing active cells for which predicate
is true, the function creates a bounding box of its children for which predicate
is true.
This results in a cover of all active cells for which predicate
is true; the parameters allow_merge
and max_boxes
are used to reduce the number of cells at a computational cost and covering a bigger ndimensional volume.
The parameters to control the algorithm are:
predicate
: the property of the cells to enclose e.g. IteratorFilters::LocallyOwnedCell . The predicate is tested only on active cells.refinement_level
: it defines the level at which the initial bounding box are created. The refinement should be set to a coarse refinement level. A bounding box is created for each active cell at coarser level than refinement_level
; if refinement_level
is higher than the number of levels of the triangulation an exception is thrown.allow_merge
: This flag allows for box merging and, by default, is false. The algorithm has a cost of O(N^2) where N is the number of the bounding boxes created from the refinement level; for this reason, if the flag is set to true, make sure to choose wisely a coarse enough refinement_level
.max_boxes
: the maximum number of bounding boxes to compute. If more are created the smaller ones are merged with neighbors. By default after merging the boxes which can be expressed as a single one no more boxes are merged. See the BoundingBox::get_neighbor_type () function for details. Notice only neighboring cells are merged (see the get_neighbor_type
function in bounding box class): if the target number of bounding boxes max_boxes can't be reached by merging neighbors an exception is thrownThe following image describes an example of the algorithm with refinement_level
= 2, allow_merge
= true and max_boxes
= 1. The cells with the property predicate are in red, the area of a bounding box is slightly orange.
allow_merge
= true the number of bounding boxes is reduced while not changing the cover. If max_boxes
was left as default or bigger than 1 these two boxes would be returned.max_boxes
= 1 the smallest bounding box is merged to the bigger one. Notice it is important to choose the parameters wisely. For instance, allow_merge
= false and refinement_level
= 1 returns the very same bounding box but with a fraction of the computational cost.This function does not take into account the curvature of cells and thus it is not suited for handling curved geometry: the mapping is assumed to be linear.

const SparsityTools::Partitioner  partitioner = SparsityTools::Partitioner::metis 

) 
This function does the same as the previous one, i.e. it partitions a triangulation using a partitioning algorithm into a number of subdomains identified by the cell>subdomain_id()
flag.
The difference to the previous function is the second argument, a sparsity pattern that represents the connectivity pattern between cells.
While the function above builds it directly from the triangulation by considering which cells neighbor each other, this function can take a more refined connectivity graph. The sparsity pattern needs to be of size \(N\times N\), where \(N\) is the number of active cells in the triangulation. If the sparsity pattern contains an entry at position \((i,j)\), then this means that cells \(i\) and \(j\) (in the order in which they are traversed by active cell iterators) are to be considered connected; partitioning algorithm will then try to partition the domain in such a way that (i) the subdomains are of roughly equal size, and (ii) a minimal number of connections are broken.
This function is mainly useful in cases where connections between cells exist that are not present in the triangulation alone (otherwise the previous function would be the simpler one to use). Such connections may include that certain parts of the boundary of a domain are coupled through symmetric boundary conditions or integrals (e.g. friction contact between the two sides of a crack in the domain), or if a numerical scheme is used that not only connects immediate neighbors but a larger neighborhood of cells (e.g. when solving integral equations).
In addition, this function may be useful in cases where the default sparsity pattern is not entirely sufficient. This can happen because the default is to just consider face neighbors, not neighboring cells that are connected by edges or vertices. While the latter couple when using continuous finite elements, they are typically still closely connected in the neighborship graph, and partitioning algorithm will not usually cut important connections in this case. However, if there are vertices in the mesh where many cells (many more than the common 4 or 6 in 2d and 3d, respectively) come together, then there will be a significant number of cells that are connected across a vertex, but several degrees removed in the connectivity graph built only using face neighbors. In a case like this, partitioning algorithm may sometimes make bad decisions and you may want to build your own connectivity graph.

std::vector< bool > GridTools::get_locally_owned_vertices  (  const Triangulation< dim, spacedim > &  triangulation  ) 
For a triangulation, return a mask that represents which of its vertices are "owned" by the current process in the same way as we talk about locally owned cells or degrees of freedom (see GlossLocallyOwnedCell and GlossLocallyOwnedDof). For the purpose of this function, we define a locally owned vertex as follows: a vertex is owned by that processor with the smallest subdomain id (which equals the MPI rank of that processor) among all owners of cells adjacent to this vertex. In other words, vertices that are in the interior of a partition of the triangulation are owned by the owner of this partition; for vertices that lie on the boundary between two or more partitions, the owner is the processor with the least subdomain_id among all adjacent subdomains.
For sequential triangulations (as opposed to, for example, parallel::distributed::Triangulation), every user vertex is of course owned by the current processor, i.e., the function returns Triangulation::get_used_vertices(). For parallel triangulations, the returned mask is a subset of what Triangulation::get_used_vertices() returns.

) 
Given two meshes (i.e. objects of type Triangulation, DoFHandler, or hp::DoFHandler) that are based on the same coarse mesh, this function figures out a set of cells that are matched between the two meshes and where at most one of the meshes is more refined on this cell. In other words, it finds the smallest cells that are common to both meshes, and that together completely cover the domain.
This function is useful, for example, in timedependent or nonlinear application, where one has to integrate a solution defined on one mesh (e.g., the one from the previous time step or nonlinear iteration) against the shape functions of another mesh (the next time step, the next nonlinear iteration). If, for example, the new mesh is finer, then one has to obtain the solution on the coarse mesh (mesh_1) and interpolate it to the children of the corresponding cell of mesh_2. Conversely, if the new mesh is coarser, one has to express the coarse cell shape function by a linear combination of fine cell shape functions. In either case, one needs to loop over the finest cells that are common to both triangulations. This function returns a list of pairs of matching iterators to cells in the two meshes that can be used to this end.
Note that the list of these iterators is not necessarily ordered, and does also not necessarily coincide with the order in which cells are traversed in one, or both, of the meshes given as arguments.

This function returns a list of all the active neighbor cells of the given, active cell. Here, a neighbor is defined as one having at least part of a face in common with the given cell, but not edge (in 3d) or vertex neighbors (in 2d and 3d).
The first element of the returned list is the cell provided as argument. The remaining ones are neighbors: The function loops over all faces of that given cell and checks if that face is not on the boundary of the domain. Then, if the neighbor cell does not have any children (i.e., it is either at the same refinement level as the current cell, or coarser) then this neighbor cell is added to the list of cells. Otherwise, if the neighbor cell is refined and therefore has children, then this function loops over all subfaces of current face adds the neighbors behind these subfaces to the list to be returned.
MeshType  A type that satisfies the requirements of the MeshType concept. In C++, the compiler can not determine MeshType from the function call. You need to specify it as an explicit template argument following the function name.

std::vector< typename Container::cell_iterator > GridTools::get_cells_at_coarsest_common_level  (  const std::vector< typename Container::active_cell_iterator > &  patch_cells  ) 
This function takes a vector of active cells (hereafter named patch_cells
) as input argument, and returns a vector of their parent cells with the coarsest common level of refinement. In other words, find that set of cells living at the same refinement level so that all cells in the input vector are children of the cells in the set, or are in the set itself.

void GridTools::build_triangulation_from_patch  (  const std::vector< typename Container::active_cell_iterator > &  patch, 
Triangulation< Container::dimension, Container::space_dimension > &  local_triangulation,  
std::map< typename Triangulation< Container::dimension, Container::space_dimension >::active_cell_iterator, typename Container::active_cell_iterator > &  patch_to_global_tria_map  
) 
This function constructs a Triangulation (named local_triangulation
) from a given vector of active cells. This vector (which we think of the cells corresponding to a "patch") contains active cells that are part of an existing global Triangulation. The goal of this function is to build a local Triangulation that contains only the active cells given in patch
(and potentially a minimum number of additional cells required to form a valid Triangulation). The function also returns a map that allows to identify the cells in the output Triangulation and corresponding cells in the input list.
The function copies the location of vertices of cells from the cells of the source triangulation to the triangulation that is built from the list of patch cells. This adds support for triangulations which have been perturbed or smoothed in some manner which makes the triangulation deviate from the standard deal.ii refinement strategy of placing new vertices at midpoints of faces or edges.
The operation implemented by this function is frequently used in the definition of error estimators that need to solve "local" problems on each cell and its neighbors. A similar construction is necessary in the definition of the Clement interpolation operator in which one needs to solve a local problem on all cells within the support of a shape function. This function then builds a complete Triangulation from a list of cells that make up such a patch; one can then later attach a DoFHandler to such a Triangulation.
If the list of input cells contains only cells at the same refinement level, then the output Triangulation simply consists of a Triangulation containing only exactly these patch cells. On the other hand, if the input cells live on different refinement levels, i.e., the Triangulation of which they are part is adaptively refined, then the construction of the output Triangulation is not so simple because the coarsest level of a Triangulation can not contain hanging nodes. Rather, we first have to find the common refinement level of all input cells, along with their common parents (see GridTools::get_cells_at_coarsest_common_level()), build a Triangulation from those, and then adaptively refine it so that the input cells all also exist in the output Triangulation.
A consequence of this procedure is that the output Triangulation may contain more active cells than the ones that exist in the input vector. On the other hand, one typically wants to solve the local problem not on the entire output Triangulation, but only on those cells of it that correspond to cells in the input list. In this case, a user typically wants to assign degrees of freedom only on cells that are part of the "patch", and somehow ignore those excessive cells. The current function supports this common requirement by setting the user flag for the cells in the output Triangulation that match with cells in the input list. Cells which are not part of the original patch will not have their user_flag
set; we can then avoid assigning degrees of freedom using the FE_Nothing<dim> element.
Container  In C++, the compiler can not determine the type of Container from the function call. You need to specify it as an explicit template argument following the function name. This type that satisfies the requirements of a mesh container (see ConceptMeshType).

std::map< types::global_dof_index, std::vector< typename DoFHandlerType::active_cell_iterator > > GridTools::get_dof_to_support_patch_map  (  DoFHandlerType &  dof_handler  ) 
This function runs through the degrees of freedom defined by the DoFHandlerType and for each dof constructs a vector of active_cell_iterators representing the cells of support of the associated basis element at that degree of freedom. This function was originally designed for the implementation of local projections, for instance the Clement interpolant, in conjunction with other local patch functions like GridTools::build_triangulation_from_patch.
DoFHandlerType's built on top of Triangulation or parallel:distributed::Triangulation are supported and handled appropriately.
The result is the patch of cells representing the support of the basis element associated to the degree of freedom. For instance using an FE_Q finite element, we obtain the standard patch of cells touching the degree of freedom and then add other cells that take care of possible hanging node constraints. Using a FE_DGQ finite element, the degrees of freedom are logically considered to be "interior" to the cells so the patch would consist exclusively of the single cell on which the degree of freedom is located.
DoFHandlerType  The DoFHandlerType should be a DoFHandler or hp::DoFHandler. 
[in]  dof_handler  The DoFHandlerType which could be built on a Triangulation or a parallel::distributed::Triangulation with a finite element that has degrees of freedom that are logically associated to a vertex, line, quad, or hex.

) 
This function will collect periodic face pairs on the coarsest mesh level of the given mesh
(a Triangulation or DoFHandler) and add them to the vector matched_pairs
leaving the original contents intact.
Define a 'first' boundary as all boundary faces having boundary_id b_id1
and a 'second' boundary consisting of all faces belonging to b_id2
.
This function tries to match all faces belonging to the first boundary with faces belonging to the second boundary with the help of orthogonal_equality().
The bitset that is returned inside of PeriodicFacePair encodes the relative orientation of the first face with respect to the second face, see the documentation of orthogonal_equality() for further details.
The direction
refers to the space direction in which periodicity is enforced. When matching periodic faces this vector component is ignored.
The offset
is a vector tangential to the faces that is added to the location of vertices of the 'first' boundary when attempting to match them to the corresponding vertices of the 'second' boundary. This can be used to implement conditions such as \(u(0,y)=u(1,y+1)\).
Optionally, a \(dim\times dim\) rotation matrix
can be specified that describes how vector valued DoFs of the first face should be modified prior to constraining to the DoFs of the second face. The matrix
is used in two places. First, matrix
will be supplied to orthogonal_equality() and used for matching faces: Two vertices \(v_1\) and \(v_2\) match if \(\text{matrix}\cdot v_1 + \text{offset}  v_2\) is parallel to the unit vector in unit direction direction
. (For more details see DoFTools::make_periodicity_constraints(), the glossary glossary entry on periodic conditions and step45). Second, matrix
will be stored in the PeriodicFacePair collection matched_pairs
for further use.

) 
This compatibility version of collect_periodic_faces() only works on grids with cells in standard orientation.
Instead of defining a 'first' and 'second' boundary with the help of two boundary_ids this function defines a 'left' boundary as all faces with local face index 2*dimension
and boundary indicator b_id
and, similarly, a 'right' boundary consisting of all face with local face index 2*dimension+1
and boundary indicator b_id
. Faces with coordinates only differing in the direction
component are identified.
This function will collect periodic face pairs on the coarsest mesh level and add them to matched_pairs
leaving the original contents intact.

void GridTools::exchange_cell_data_to_ghosts  (  const MeshType &  mesh, 
const std::function< std_cxx17::optional< DataType >(const typename MeshType::active_cell_iterator &)> &  pack,  
const std::function< void(const typename MeshType::active_cell_iterator &, const DataType &)> &  unpack  
) 
Exchange arbitrary data of type DataType
provided by the function objects from locally owned cells to ghost cells on other processors.
After this call, you typically will have received data from unpack
on every ghost cell as it was given by pack
on the owning processor. Whether you do or do not receive information to unpack
on a given ghost cell depends on whether the pack
function decided that something needs to be sent. It does so using the std_cxx17::optional mechanism: if the std_cxx17::optional return object of the pack
function is empty, then this implies that no data has to be sent for the locally owned cell it was called on. In that case, unpack
will also not be called on the ghost cell that corresponds to it on the receiving side. On the other hand, if the std_cxx17::optional object is not empty, then the data stored within it will be sent to the received and the unpack
function called with it.
DataType  The type of the data to be communicated. It is assumed to be serializable by boost::serialization. In many cases, this data type can not be deduced by the compiler, e.g., if you provide lambda functions for the second and third argument to this function. In this case, you have to explicitly specify the DataType as a template argument to the function call. 
MeshType  The type of mesh . 
mesh  A variable of a type that satisfies the requirements of the MeshType concept. 
pack  The function that will be called on each locally owned cell that is a ghost cell somewhere else. As mentioned above, the function may return a regular data object of type DataType to indicate that data should be sent, or an empty std_cxx17::optional<DataType> to indicate that nothing has to be sent for this cell. 
unpack  The function that will be called for each ghost cell for which data was sent, i.e., for which the pack function on the sending side returned a nonempty std_cxx17::optional object. The unpack function is then called with the data sent by the processor that owns that cell. 
Here is an example that shows how this function is to be used in a concrete context. It is taken from the code that makes sure that the active_fe_index
(a single unsigned integer) is transported from locally owned cells where one can set it in hp::DoFHandler objects, to the corresponding ghost cells on other processors to ensure that one can query the right value also on those processors:
You will notice that the pack
lambda function returns an unsigned int
, not a std_cxx17::optional<unsigned int>
. The former converts automatically to the latter, implying that data will always be transported to the other processor.
(In reality, the unpack
function needs to be a bit more complicated because it is not allowed to call DoFAccessor::set_active_fe_index() on ghost cells. Rather, the unpack
function directly accesses internal data structures. But you get the idea – the code could, just as well, have exchanged material ids, user indices, boundary indicators, or any kind of other data with similar calls as the ones above.)
RTree< std::pair< BoundingBox< spacedim >, unsigned int > > GridTools::build_global_description_tree  (  const std::vector< BoundingBox< spacedim >> &  local_description, 
MPI_Comm  mpi_communicator  
) 
In this collective operation each process provides a vector of bounding boxes and a communicator. All these vectors are gathered on each of the processes, organized in a search tree which, and then returned.
The idea is that the vector of bounding boxes describes a relevant property of the computations on each process individually, which could also be of use to other processes. An example would be if the input vector of bounding boxes corresponded to a covering of the locally owned partition of a mesh (see GlossLocallyOwnedCell) of a parallel::distributed::Triangulation object. While these may overlap the bounding boxes of other processes, finding which process owns the cell that encloses a given point is vastly easier if the process trying to figure this out has a list of bounding boxes for each of the other processes at hand.
The returned search tree object is an rtree with packing algorithm, which is provided by boost library. See https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_67_0/libs/geometry/doc/html/geometry/spatial_indexes/introduction.html for more information.
In the returned tree, each node contains a pair of elements: the first being a bounding box, the second being the rank of the process whose local description contains the bounding box.
