FEM2D_SAMPLE
Evaluate a Finite Element Function of a 2D Argument
FEM2D_SAMPLE
is a C++ program which
can evaluate a finite element function of a 2D argument.
The current version of the program can only handle finite element
meshes which are made of piecewise linear triangles of order 3 or 6.
Usage:
fem2d_sample fem_prefix sample_prefix
where fem_prefix is the common prefix for the FEM files:

fem_prefix_nodes.txt, the node coordinates.

fem_prefix_elements.txt, the nodes that make up each element;

fem_prefix_values.txt, the values defined at each node.
and sample_prefix is the common prefix for the SAMPLE files,
for which the node file is input, and the values file is created by the program:

sample_prefix_nodes.txt, the node coordinates where samples are desired.

sample_prefix_values.txt, the values computed at each sample node.

Examples and Tests:
SQ is FEM data for the function f(x,y)=x^2+y^2, on a 5x5 grid
of nodes, organized into linear triangles. The sample data seeks the values
of this function on a 4x4 evenly spaced grid.
