Variational quadratic shape functions for polygons and polyhedra

This work proposes variationally optimized piecewise quadratic shape functions for polygons and polyhedra, which generalize quadRatic P2 elements, exactly reproduce them on simplices, and inherit their beneficial numerical properties.

On the origin of nonclassicality in single systems

Contextuality turns out to be an independent nonclassical feature, arising from the intransitivity of compatibility, which is shown to naturally suggest an underlying simplex as an ontological model.
