Discontinous Galerkin Finite Element Numeric Calculus MATLAB Toolbox

I have developed a MATLAB toolbox to implement the Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Element Differential Calculus found here. This software allows one to take a discrete derivative of functions that are classically, weakly, and distributionally differentiable in one or two dimensions.

The documentation is available here and the code is available here for you to test and use. Note: This code is used as-is. I assume no loss or liability for the use of this code.
