    Tracer advection event

    This event integrates advection equations of the form \displaystyle \partial_tf_i+\mathbf{u_f}\cdot\nabla f_i=0 where \mathbf{u_f} is the velocity field and f_i are a list of passive tracers.

    The tracers list is defined elsewhere (typically by the user), the face vector field uf and the timestep dt are defined by a solver.

    extern scalar * tracers;
    extern face vector uf;
    extern double dt;

    On adaptive meshes, tracers need to use linear interpolation (rather than the default bilinear interpolation) to ensure conservation when refining cells.

    #if TREE
    event defaults (i = 0) {
      for (scalar s in tracers) {
    #if EMBED
        s.refine = s.prolongation = refine_embed_linear;
    #else
        s.refine  = refine_linear;
    #endif
        s.restriction = restriction_volume_average;
      }
    }
    #endif

    The integration is performed using the Bell-Collela-Glaz scheme.

    #include "bcg.h"
    
    event tracer_advection (i++,last) {
      advection (tracers, uf, dt);
    }

    Diffusion can be added by overloading this hook.

    event tracer_diffusion (i++,last);
