The input file

The file below is a valid input file to NGSolve. The first two lines load the prepared geometry file and the mesh file. It is a square. The boundary splits into the 4 sides to . We specify Robin boundary conditions (with conductivity ) on to , and Neumann boundary condition (with ) on . This is defined in terms of coefficients. The list of numbers correspond to the sub-domains, if the integral is taken over the domain, or, to parts of the boundary, if the integral is taken over the boundary, respectively. The next lines define the mathematical objects finite-element space, grid-function, bilinear-form, linear-form, and a preconditioner. The last line (numproc) calls the solver for boundary value problems (bvp). Here, a preconditioned conjugate gradients iteration is called.
