Extraction of Finite Element Basis Functions From the Cellular Topology of Meshes

Abstract

This paper is devoted to the presentation of a simple but powerful topological approach for the computation of basis functions involved in the expression of finite element interpolants. It deals with the so-called nodal and edge elements but similar considerations can be made for the construction of facet ones. All standard cells are treated including… (More)
