Unstructured Grids and Cell Complexes (DMPLEX)#
DMPLEX subclass of
DM encapsulates an unstructured mesh, with interfaces for both topology and geometry. It is capable of parallel refinement and coarsening
(using Pragmatic or ParMmg) and parallel redistribution for load balancing. It is designed to interface with the
PetscFV trial discretization objects.
