# PetscSpacePolynomialGetTensor

Get whether a function space is a space of tensor polynomials (the space is spanned by polynomials whose degree in each variabl is bounded by the given order), as opposed to polynomials (the space is spanned by polynomials whose total degree---summing over all variables---is bounded by the given order).
