is_nodal
()¶ True if primal and dual bases are orthogonal. If false, dual basis is not implemented or is undefined.
Subclasses may not necessarily be nodal, unless it is a CiarletElement.

tabulate
(order, points, entity=None)¶ Return tabulated values of derivatives up to given order of basis functions at given points.

value_shape
()¶ Return the value shape of the finite element functions.


class
FIAT.tensor_product.
TensorProductElement
(A, B)¶ Bases:
FIAT.finite_element.FiniteElement
Class implementing a finite element that is the tensor product of two existing finite elements.

degree
()¶ Return the degree of the (embedding) polynomial space.

dmats
()¶ Return dmats: expansion coefficients for basis function derivatives.

get_coeffs
()¶ Return the expansion coefficients for the basis of the finite element.

get_nodal_basis
()¶ Return the nodal basis, encoded as a PolynomialSet object, for the finite element.

get_num_members
(arg)¶ Return number of members of the expansion set.

is_nodal
()¶ True if primal and dual bases are orthogonal. If false, dual basis is not implemented or is undefined.
Subclasses may not necessarily be nodal, unless it is a CiarletElement.

tabulate
(order, points, entity=None)¶ Return tabulated values of derivatives up to given order of basis functions at given points.
