PetscDTGaussLobattoLegendreQuadrature

creates a set of the locations and weights of the Gauss-Lobatto-Legendre nodes of a given size on the domain [-1,1]

Synopsis

#include "petscdt.h" 
PetscErrorCode PetscDTGaussLobattoLegendreQuadrature(PetscInt npoints,PetscGaussLobattoLegendreCreateType type,PetscReal *x,PetscReal *w)
Not Collective

Input Parameter

n - number of grid nodes
type - PETSCGAUSSLOBATTOLEGENDRE_VIA_LINEAR_ALGEBRA or PETSCGAUSSLOBATTOLEGENDRE_VIA_NEWTON

Output Arguments

x - quadrature points
w - quadrature weights

Notes

For n > 30 the Newton approach computes duplicate (incorrect) values for some nodes because the initial guess is apparently not close enough to the desired solution

These are useful for implementing spectral methods based on Gauss-Lobatto-Legendre (GLL) nodes
