### DG local equation, how to interpret mean-averaged test function

In the paper http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0045782509003521, an HDG element-local equation is described on page 584 equation (4), with one of the equations taking the following ...

### Viewing HDG FEM edge variables in vtk / paraview

For a 2D HDG code, I would like to be able to visualize the solution on the edge space between elements. Basically, this amounts to plotting the solution on the "green" nodes below. Is there a ...
