Draft: Collections implementation for Advection-Diffusion-Reaction (ADR) operator

Open Henrik Wustenberg requested to merge hwustenb/nektar:feature/matfree-adroperator into master

Issue/feature addressed

Collections optimisation for ADR operator to enable faster simulations, in particular, for the Implicit Velocity-Correction scheme for IncNavierStokesSolver.

Proposed solution

Add the operator similar to the Helmholtz implementations in Collections, however, including the advection operator which means we need to add code for updating the varcoeffs (e.g. advection velocities).


Took a lot of functionality from Helmholtz operators and optimised it for the ADR routine. Added some functionality to the Collections::Operator class to update varcoeffs when calling CheckFactors.
