## 2.4 Three dimensional Surfaces

In the subroutines that solve Laplace problems
in three dimensions (
LIBEM3,
LEBEM3 and
LSEM3)
the boundaries must
be represented in the form of a set of planar triangles.
In order that the normal to the boundary points outward rather
than inward the three nodes that define each element must
be listed in the anti-clockwise direction when it
is viewed from just outside the surface.
The programs
LIBEM3_T and
LEBEM3_T
LSEM3_T
each solve Laplace
problems in which the boundary under consideration is that of
a sphere of unit radius.
