# create_mesh¶

dolfin.cpp.fem.create_mesh()

Creates mesh from coordinate function Topology is given by underlying mesh of the function space and geometry is given by function values. Hence resulting mesh geometry has a degree of the function space degree. Geometry of function mesh is ignored. Mesh connectivities d-0, d-1, …, d-r are built on function mesh (where d is topological dimension of the mesh and r is maximal dimension of entity associated with any coordinate node). Consider clearing unneeded connectivities when finished.

Parameters: & coordinates (Function) – (Function ) Vector Lagrange function of any degree Mesh Mesh The mesh
