DMPLEX

"plex" - A DM object that encapsulates an unstructured mesh, or CW Complex, which can be expressed using a Hasse Diagram. In the local representation, Vecs contain all unknowns in the interior and shared boundary. This is specified by a PetscSection object. Ownership in the global representation is determined by ownership of the underlying DMPlex points. This is specified by another PetscSection object.
