Do you have any suggestions to work around this drawback?
Do I understand right, that this issue is problematic, if floating subdomains
Do I have the possibility to provide the null space from user site?
Or how big would be the effort to change the nn-code to work for this problem
Is such a work useful at all or do you regard BNN only a rather complicated
method to be done much better by other (even simpler) algorithms?
