This script computes the weights and nodes for a Gauss quadrature rule on an n-dimensional simplex. The user can either specify the vertices of the simplex or only the dimension and the vertices of the unit simplex will then be used.
The first four simplexes are
n | Domain
1 | Interval
2 | Triangle
3 | Tetrahedron
4 | Pentatope
Thanks to John D'Errico for helping with this script.
I use it for finite element coding, it works very well. I've checked it against other codes, very good agreement. Will stick with this one!
This does integrate correctly. Was unable to debug the triangle quadrature function. Something to do with incorrect Y values.
Have not try it with my own applications. But it is very nice to have a small piece of code like this. Good Job
I've tested this code for simplexes in dimensions from 1
to 7. All results were correct in all tests. In 1-d of course,
its a 1-d Gauss-Legendre quadrature, easily verified from
tables. In higher dimensions all I could do was verify a
Its a nice piece of code, easy to use for an integration
over an entire simplicial complex.
