DMPlexCreateBasisRotation
Create an internal transformation from the global basis, used to specify boundary conditions and global solutions, to a local basis, appropriate for discretization integrals and assembly.
Synopsis
#include "petscdmplex.h"
PetscErrorCode DMPlexCreateBasisRotation(DM dm, PetscReal alpha, PetscReal beta, PetscReal gamma)
Input Parameters
Note: Following https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euler_angles, we will specify Euler angles by extrinsic rotations, meaning that
we rotate with respect to a fixed initial coordinate system, the local basis (xyz). The global basis (XYZ) is reached as follows
$ The XYZ system rotates about the z axis by alpha. The X axis is now at angle alpha with respect to the x axis.
$ The XYZ system rotates again about the x axis by beta. The Z axis is now at angle beta with respect to the z axis.
$ The XYZ system rotates a third time about the z axis by gamma.
