## Detailed Description

Pure virtual class that defines the variational form.

AbstractVariational is a pure virtual class, that specifies a set of abstract interfaces, required to integrate the variational form and the right-hand side over an element, and to compute the norm of compute solution, exact solution, and error over the element. A concrete implementation of this class also defined how boundary conditions are resolved.

The element on which the integration is performed is specified by providing the coordinates of the local vertices.
