# ply_split_legendre_module Module

This module provides the functionality to split Legendre polynomials into a left and right subinterval with transformed coordinates.

The original polynomial is defined on the interval [-1,1] and the two new polynomial representations are computed in the intervals [-1,0] and [0,1] but in the changed coordinate system, with the interval [-1,1] for each. Thus, if we refer to the coordinates in the original (coarse) element as x and to the respective coordinates in the two halfed elements as xi_left and xi_right, we compute the modal representation of the original Legendre polynomial series under these transformations:

This is needed when refining elements.

## Functions

### public pure function ply_split_legendre_matrix(nModes) result(split_matrix)

#### Arguments

TypeIntentOptionalAttributesName
integer, intent(in) :: nModes

The maximal number of modes to compute the transformation for.

The resulting matrix v will be max_modes x max_modes large and can be used for the transformation of all polynomials with up to this many modes.
