DMPlexCreateFromDAG#

This takes as input the adjacency-list representation of the Directed Acyclic Graph (Hasse Diagram) encoding a mesh, and produces a DM

Synopsis#

#include "petscdmplex.h"   
#include "petscdmplex.h"   
PetscErrorCode DMPlexCreateFromDAG(DM dm, PetscInt depth, const PetscInt numPoints[], const PetscInt coneSize[], const PetscInt cones[], const PetscInt coneOrientations[], const PetscScalar vertexCoords[])

Input Parameters#

  • dm - The empty DM object, usually from DMCreate() and DMSetDimension()

  • depth - The depth of the DAG

  • numPoints - Array of size depth + 1 containing the number of points at each depth

  • coneSize - The cone size of each point

  • cones - The concatenation of the cone points for each point, the cone list must be oriented correctly for each point

  • coneOrientations - The orientation of each cone point

  • vertexCoords - An array of numPoints[0]*spacedim numbers representing the coordinates of each vertex, with spacedim the value set via DMSetCoordinateDim()

Output Parameter#

  • dm - The DM

Note#

Two triangles sharing a face would have input

  depth = 1, numPoints = [4 2], coneSize = [3 3 0 0 0 0]
  cones = [2 3 4  3 5 4], coneOrientations = [0 0 0  0 0 0]
 vertexCoords = [-1.0 0.0  0.0 -1.0  0.0 1.0  1.0 0.0]

which would result in the DMPlex
