The Monte Carlo solver in JBONE is different from the
finite differences and finite elements
solvers in the sense that the solution is represented by the set of
particles and the function
is just used for diagnostics.
As shown in the class tree, the
solvers have been divided into particle methods and fluid methods.
The discretization with particles is contained in the class
ParticleSolution
and the Monte Carlo time stepping and boundary conditions in the class
MCPSolution.
The class
ParticleSolution
contains a vector of the particles phase space coordinates.
Since f[] is only defined as a projection onto the
rooftop base, the advantage of an objected
oriented methods becomes clear, as e.g. the method
limits()
can here be overridden from the definition in
Solution.
Indeed, check how
limits()
in
FluidSolution
is computed directly from the solution f[], whereas in
ParticleSolution
the method
generateDistribution()
needs to be called prior to finding min and max of f[].
Everything the class jbone
needs to know is that the solver is a subclass of
Solution.
How and where things are computed, is none of
jbone's
business!
Also note how the solutions to exercises 5.35.5 will be inherited in
the class
MCPDrawParticlesSolution
