MeshCells

MeshCells[mreg,d]
gives the cells of dimension d in the mesh region mreg.

MeshCells[mreg,cellspec]
gives the cells specified by cellspec.

DetailsDetails

  • MeshCells is often used to get the symbolic cell h[{i1,}] from a cell index {d,i}.
  • The cells returned have the form h[{i1,}] where ik are coordinate index indicating point ik in the list of coordinates given by MeshCoordinates.
  • The mesh region mreg can be either MeshRegion or BoundaryMeshRegion.
  • The cell specification cellspec follows the standard form described for MeshRegion and BoundaryMeshRegion.
  • MeshCellCount can be used to find the maximum number of cells for each dimension.
