ProfileXTd — Space- and time-dependent boundary condition profiles, with derivatives.


Subclasses are listed as they appear in the GUI and (in parentheses) as they appear in scripts.


A ProfileXTd object describes the shape of a boundary condition. That is, a boundary condition fixes some quantity (a Field component, for example) on a boundary and the profile of the boundary condition specifies how that quantity varies along the length of the boundary.

Profiles specified by ProfileXTd can depend on both position and time. If they're time dependent, the time derivative must be specified.

The ContinuumProfileXTd, ConstantProfile, and LinearProfile subclasses simply differ in how the profile is specified, with ContinuumProfileXTd being the most general and ConstantProfile the least.
