### Large meshing with tetgen

So I have a point cloud that I am creating a 3D flat rectangular surface from. I'm then turning it into a hollow box and connecting the corners by just dropping this surface mesh down. I need it to ...

### matplotlib contourplot for $\log z$ in the Complex Plane $\mathbb{C}$

I tried using Python's matplotlib on the logarithm and here is what I got, a kind of starburst pattern. Since the angle jumps between $\theta = 0$ and $\theta = 2\pi$, contour assumes there is a ...

### Isosurface extraction when you know the derivatives

I have a complicated equation that defines a shape in 3D, and I would like to generate a surface mesh. The shape is defined by an isosurface, i.e. the function is positive inside the shape and ...

### Adaptive Finite Element Method - Laplace

I'm currently attempting to turn my code for solving the laplace equation using finite element approximations into an adaptive one using the dual weighted residual as my error estimator: i.e. my ...

### Duplicate Surface Meshes in different Gmsh files

My objective is to get a conformal surface mesh between two geometries meshed independently in different files. By example, I can start with a simple cube in one .geo file and mesh this geometry. ...

### Metis: how to use and tutorial recommendation

I am new to METIS and trying to use it in my fortran code. I read the manual online. But still, I am not sure about how to implement it my code. I tried the test cases in the graphs directory. For ...

### adaptive / smart grid choice for dynamic programming

I've a read a paper about investing where they used a dynamic programming approach to solve a finite horizon problem, i.e. $$\max_{x_t} E[u(W_T)]$$ where $u$ is a utility function and $W_T$ ...

### How to generate a tet10 mesh from a tet4 mesh

I am writing a FEN solver on tet10 elements. I right now have a CFD grid gen tool (Pointwise) which generates tet4 meshes. From this I have the element connectivity list and the node list. How do I go ...

### Generate discrete set of points in a feasible region

I have two vectors which specify the bounds $x_{min}$ and $x_{max}$ of the sample space. Also, it has to satisfy the linear constraint $Ax \leq b$. How to generate an evenly spaced set of points, ...

### Mesh partitioner with user-defined overlap

I am looking for a mesh partitioner, where I can specify overlap, for example h = 3. I have looked into metis, but I wasn't able to find such a functionality. Is there any other package which ...

### Size of the support

I am working on moving least square approximation. To well-define of this method, the following matrix of size $n \times m$ must be of rank $m$. For $m=3$ {\bf A }=\begin{pmatrix} 1&x_1&y_1\\...
