discretize 0.8.0 Release Notes#
May 12, 2022
This minor release introduces a new mesh type to discretize,
discretize now has support for triangular (2D) and tetrahedral (3D) meshes. These meshes
support most of the operations that you would expect of a discretize mesh that is used
to solve PDEs with the finite volume method. You have access to
SimplexMesh.edge_curl() operators, along
with the expected inner product operators and their derivatives:
SimplexMesh.get_face_inner_product_deriv(). They contain the expected average
operators that move between nodes, cell centers, faces, and edges. The interpolation
operator can interpolate scalar values from nodes and cell centers, and interpolate vector
quantities from edges and faces. The mesh also has operators to handle the boundary
conditions in manners similar to the previous implementation.
The basic format of input into a
SimplexMesh is an array of node locations,
and an array of the simplex indices, enabling for simple interaction with many different
mesh generation libraries. There are readers for unstructured VTK files which contain
all of either triangular or tetrahedral elements.
TreeMesh is now linear between cells of the same level for the
cell centered, edge, and face interpolators.
All of the previous Deprecation Warnings from the refactor of
discretize to pep8
friendly names in v0.6.0 have been changed to Future Warnings in preparation for the
1.0.0 release of discretize.
