Using cylindrical geometry.

NOTE:

  1. z must be periodic
  2. The field $f(\rho, \theta)$ must be of class infinity in $z=0$ and $z=2\pi$
  3. The field $f(\rho, \theta)$ must be single valued when $\rho\to0$
  4. The field $f(\rho, \theta)$ must be continuous in the $\rho$ direction with $f(\rho, \theta + \pi)$
  5. Eventual BC in $\rho$ must be satisfied

# Gaussian with sinus and parabola

# The skew sinus
# In cartesian coordinates we would like a sinus with with a wave-vector in the direction
# 45 degrees with respect to the first quadrant. This can be achieved with a wave vector
# k = [1/sqrt(2), 1/sqrt(2)]
# sin((1/sqrt(2))*(x + y))
# We would like 2 nodes, so we may write
# sin((1/sqrt(2))*(x + y)*(2*pi/(2*Lx)))
# Rewriting this to cylindrical coordinates, gives
# sin((1/sqrt(2))*(x*(cos(z)+sin(z)))*(2*pi/(2*Lx)))

# The gaussian
# In cartesian coordinates we would like
# f = exp(-(1/(2*w^2))*((x-x0)^2 + (y-y0)^2))
# In cylindrical coordinates, this translates to
# f = exp(-(1/(2*w^2))*(x^2 + y^2 + x0^2 + y0^2 - 2*(x*x0+y*y0) ))
#   = exp(-(1/(2*w^2))*(rho^2 + rho0^2 - 2*rho*rho0*(cos(theta)*cos(theta0)+sin(theta)*sin(theta0)) ))
#   = exp(-(1/(2*w^2))*(rho^2 + rho0^2 - 2*rho*rho0*(cos(theta - theta0)) ))

# A parabola
# In cartesian coordinates, we have
# ((x-x0)/Lx)^2
# Chosing this function to have a zero value at the edge yields in cylindrical coordinates
# ((x*cos(z)+Lx)/(2*Lx))^2
