# Lagrange¶

class dolfin.cpp.function.Lagrange(*args)

Lagrange polynomial (basis) with given degree q determined by n = q + 1 nodal points.

Example: q = 1 (n = 2)

Lagrange p(1); p.set(0, 0.0); p.set(1, 1.0);

It is the callers reponsibility that the points are distinct.

This creates a Lagrange polynomial (actually two Lagrange polynomials):

p(0,x) = 1 - x (one at x = 0, zero at x = 1) p(1,x) = x (zero at x = 0, one at x = 1)
