This article introduces a new method to efficiently compute the distance (i.e., L^p norm of the difference) between two functions supported by two different meshes of the same 3D domain. The functions that we consider are typically finite element solutions discretized in different function spaces supported by meshes that are potentially completely unrelated. Our method computes an approximation of the distance by resampling both fields over a set of parallel 2D regular grids. By leveraging the parallel horse power of computer graphics hardware (GPU), our method can efficiently compute distances between meshes with multi-million elements in seconds. We demonstrate our method applied to different problems (distance between known functions, Poisson solutions, linear elasticity solutions) using different function spaces (Lagrange polynomials from order one to seven) and different meshes (tetrahedral, hexahedral, with linear or quadratic geometry).
