|bool||getFieldEqnNumber (int fieldID, int &eqnNumber) const|
|void||getFieldID (int eqnNumber, int &fieldID, int &offset_into_field) const|
Global node identifier number of nodal degrees-of-freedom list of associated field identifiers, with their (global) equation numbers (global) blk-eqn number which processor is this node's owner list of (local) blocks that contain this node
Note: 'block' is used in two contexts here. There are element-blocks, and there are block-equations. Element-blocks refer to the blocks of elements in the finite-element problem, with all elements in a block containing the same number of solution fields per node, etc. Block-equations refer to the small dense sub-blocks of a block-entry sparse matrix. Each node is associated with a number of element-blocks, and each node has exactly one associated global 0-based block-equation number.
