Get the subset of the dual space basis that is supported on a particular mesh point.


#include "petscfe.h" 
PetscErrorCode PetscDualSpaceGetPointSubspace(PetscDualSpace sp, PetscInt point, PetscDualSpace *bdsp)
If the dual space is not defined on the mesh point (e.g. if the space is discontinuous and pointwise values are not defined on the element boundaries), or if the implementation of PetscDualSpace does not support extracting subspaces, then NULL is returned.

This does not increment the reference count on the returned dual space, and the user should not destroy it.

Not collective

Input Parameters

sp - the PetscDualSpace object
point - the point (in the dual space's DM) for which the subspace is desired

Output Parameters

bdsp - the subspace. Note that the functionals in the subspace are with respect to the intrinsic geometry of the point, which will be of lesser dimension if height > 0.
