 Orders $$1\leqslant k$$ Reference elements triangle, tetrahedron Definition This is a mixed element containing these subelements:order $$k$$ vector Lagrange space order $$k-1$$ Lagrange space Number of DOFs triangle: $$(k+1)(3k+4)/2$$tetrahedron: $$(k+1)(k+2)(4k+9)/6$$ Notes This is the same as the Taylor–Hood element, but the second subelement in this case is discontinuous between cells.
