ASSEMBLEJ Finite element assembly of Jacobian forms.
[ VROWINDS, VROWCOLS, VJVALS, N_ROWS, N_COLS ] = ASSEMBLEJ( AFORM, FFORM, C_SFUN, C_ACOEF, C_FCOEF, ICUB, P, C, A, IND_S, PROB, OFFSET, IPERT, DPERT, N_CMAX )
Assembles a numerical Jacobian matrix representation of a finite element bilinear and linear forms.
IPERT indicates to perturb the solution vector (=0) with DPERT (default 1e8) calculating the Jacobian J = dK/du*U  f, where each column J_i is given as
J_i = ( (K(U_i+DPERT)*(U_i+DPERT)f(U_i+DPERT))  (K(U)*Uf(U)) )/DPERT
Alternatively, if IPERT is equal to an integer (1, 2 or 3) the Jacobian with respect to space dimension/coordinate IPERT will be computed as
J_i = ( (K(U,x+DPERT)*(U,x+DPERT)f(U,x+DPERT))  (K(U,x)*Uf(U,x)) )/DPERT
The linearization point/solution vector U needs to be given and stored in the prob.sol.u field. If it is not present a zero solution will be used.
Each column in AFORM and FFORM specify bilinear and linear additive terms to compute. In AFORM the first row corresponds to the trial function space, and second test space. The form entries denote either function values or derivatives to evaluate.
C_SFUN indicates which shape functions to use for the trial and test function spaces. Optionally, a third entry is required for the trial function space when assembling offdiagonal (target) blocks for coupled problems. If only one or two C_SFUN entries is provided, the first entry will be used for target trial function space.
For offdiagonal blocks the dof OFFSET ( dof_offset_row, dof_offset_column ) is used to find and perturb the target block solution vector.
C_ACOEF and C_FCOEF specifies the coefficients to evaluate for the forms.
The computed matrix entries are returned in VJVALS where VROWINDS and VROWCOLS are corresponding row and column pointers. N_ROWS and N_COLS give the number of rows in the matrix. J sparse representation of the matrix can subsequently be constructed by calling SPARSE
J = sparse( vRowInds, vColInds, vJvals, n_rows, n_cols );
on the output of ASSEMLBLEJ.
