Hi all, cell centres and th
Hi all,

cell centres and their relative internal field present the same order in their lists, is it the same for the face centres of a patch and their relative patchfield?
I mean: if a face centre of a patch has index i in the list of the face centres of that patch, has its patchfield value the same index in the "list" relative to the patch field?

Thanks in advance
