Detailed Description

Implementation of the default H(div)-compatible FEM basis of degree 1 on Quadrilateral cell.

Implements Raviart-Thomas basis of degree 1 on the reference Quadrilateral cell. The basis has cardinality 4 and spans a INCOMPLETE bi-linear polynomial space. Basis functions are dual to a unisolvent set of degrees-of-freedom (DoF) defined and enumerated as follows:

  |         |           degree-of-freedom-tag table                    |                            |

  • In the DOF functional ${\bf n}=(t_2,-t_1)$ where ${\bf t}=(t_1,t_2)$ is the side (edge) tangent, i.e., the choice of normal direction is such that the pair $({\bf n},{\bf t})$ is positively oriented.
  • Direction of side tangents is determined by the vertex order of the sides in the cell topology and runs from side vertex 0 to side vertex 1, whereas their length is set equal to the side length. For example, side 1 of all Quadrilateral reference cells has vertex order {1,2}, i.e., its tangent runs from vertex 1 of the reference Quadrilateral to vertex 2 of that cell. On the reference Quadrilateral the coordinates of these vertices are (1,-1) and (1,1), respectively. Therefore, the tangent to side 1 is (1,1)-(1,-1) = (0,2) and the normal to that side is (2,0). Because its length already equals side length, no further rescaling of the side tangent is needed.
  • The length of the side normal equals the length of the side. As a result, the DoF functional is the value of the normal component of a vector field at the side center times the side length. The resulting basis is equivalent to a basis defined by using the side flux as a DoF functional. Note that all sides of the reference Quadrilateral<> cells have length 2.
