fem1d_sample


fem1d_sample, a MATLAB code which can evaluate a finite element function of one argument.

The current version of the program can only handle finite element meshes which are made of piecewise constant or piecewise linear basis functions.

Usage:

fem1d_sample fem_prefix sample_prefix
where fem_prefix is the common prefix for the FEM files: 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:
