Hi FOAMers,

I would like to solve this equation :

laplacian(U) + U = (known field)

where u is unknown volVectorField and should be solve implicitly.
i don't know what i can do with the term (U), because to solve the equation implicitly i can write:
solve ( fvm::laplacian(U) + fvm::U == knownTerm...)
The problem is that the term fvm::U does not work because i need an operator after fvm::, and if i just write (U), OpenFOAM uses the value from the previous time step, which will be different from what i'm going to solve...
Does anybody know how i can deal with the U term to solve it implicitly?

Have you tried with:
fvm::Sp(1,U) ?
(term I have written for example)
