Lagrange_and_edge_polynomials.Lagrange_polynomials(nodes, xi)[source]

Compute the Lagrange polynomials built on nodes. They are then evaluated at xi.

Parameters:
• nodes (1d np.array) – The nodes on which the Lagrange polynomials are built.

• xi (1d np.array) – The points to evaluate the Lagrange polynomials.

Returns:

A 2d numpy.array whose 0-dimension refers to the indexes of the polynomials and 1-dimension refers to the values evaluated at xi.

Example:

>>> nodes = np.array([-1., -0.4472136,  0.4472136,  1.])
>>> x = np.linspace(-1, 1, 50)
>>> lp = Lagrange_polynomials(nodes, x)
>>> lp[0,:] # l^0(xi)

Lagrange_and_edge_polynomials.edge_polynomials(nodes, xi)[source]

Compute the edge polynomials built on nodes. They are then evaluated at xi.

Parameters:
• nodes (1d np.array) – The nodes on which the edge polynomials are built.

• xi (1d np.array) – The points to evaluate the edge polynomials.

Returns:

A 2d numpy.array whose 0-dimension refers to the indexes of the polynomials and 1-dimension refers to the values evaluated at xi.

Example:

>>> nodes = np.array([-1., -0.65465367,  0.,  0.65465367,  1.])
>>> x = np.linspace(-1, 1, 50)
>>> ep = edge_polynomials(nodes, x)
>>> ep[2,:]  # e^3(xi)
