Sorry about this mail . I see there is a really stupid error in what I am doing. Subramanya Sadasiva "But memory eventually fades.

Upon further study, it seems like the elem_fixed_solution stores the element solution in situations where the elem_solution may contain the velocity or delta solution. Is this correct? Manav

Please correct me as you see fit. I see that the method mass_residual is used in the classes Euler_Solver and Euler2_Solver. What is throwing me off is that the class documentation of Euler2_Solver says: * Euler solves u' = f(theta*u_new + (1theta)*u_old), * Euler2 solves u' = theta*f(u_new) + (1theta)*f(u_old) which seems to imply that no mass matrix is accounted for. Are the u and f(u) here the solution after discretization, or before discretization? My current guess is that the u' in these equations should actually be replaced with the product [M] u' , like one would encounter postdiscretization. What is your assessment? Also, while going through the code, I came across the following in euler_solver.C (lines 124129) // We do a trick here to avoid using a non1 // elem_solution_derivative: context.elem_jacobian *= 1.0; jacobian_computed = _system.mass_residual(jacobian_computed, context) && jacobian_computed; context.elem_jacobian *= 1.0; What is the need to multiply the elem_jacobian by 1.0 both before and after the function call? Wouldn't the call to mass_residual overwrite the elem_jacobian anyways? Thanks, Manav
