discretization schemes for Gradient
 
I wonder if someone could enlighten me on the difference between the different discretization schemes (in fluent) for Gradient :

- Green gauss cell-based

- Green nodes cell-based

- Least Squares cell based

Thanks for all

Green-Gauses theorem to compute the cell centered gradient of a scalar as face-area-weighted average of the cell face centered valuse:
gradient=intergal(face value*vertor*aera)/Volume
if (Green-Gauss Cell based)
{the face value is taken from the arithmetic averge of the value at the neighboring cell centers }
if (Green-Gauss node based)
{the face value is taken from the arithmetic averge of the nodal value on the face}
