# Degree 1 Lagrange on a prism

◀ Back to Lagrange definition page In this example:
• $$R$$ is the reference prism. The following numbering of the subentities of the reference is used:
• • $$\mathcal{V}$$ is spanned by: $$1$$, $$x$$, $$y$$, $$z$$, $$x z$$, $$y z$$
• $$\mathcal{L}=\{l_0,...,l_{5}\}$$
• Functionals and basis functions:
$$\displaystyle l_{0}:v\mapsto v(0,0,0)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{0} = x z - x + y z - y - z + 1$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 0 of the reference element.
$$\displaystyle l_{1}:v\mapsto v(1,0,0)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{1} = x \left(1 - z\right)$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 1 of the reference element.
$$\displaystyle l_{2}:v\mapsto v(0,1,0)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{2} = y \left(1 - z\right)$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 2 of the reference element.
$$\displaystyle l_{3}:v\mapsto v(0,0,1)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{3} = z \left(- x - y + 1\right)$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 3 of the reference element.
$$\displaystyle l_{4}:v\mapsto v(1,0,1)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{4} = x z$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 4 of the reference element.
$$\displaystyle l_{5}:v\mapsto v(0,1,1)$$

$$\displaystyle \phi_{5} = y z$$

This DOF is associated with vertex 5 of the reference element.
