4.3.4. Connected Components operator

The Connected Components operator is in a special class of operators, one that creates a new variable. In this case, the operator accepts as an input variable the name of a mesh, and constructs a scalar variable as output.

The operator creates unique labels for each connected mesh sub-component and tags each zone in the mesh with the label of the connected component it belongs to. Figure 4.18,

The operator has one option which controls the use of Ghost Zone Neighbors for connectivity between domains. This option is turned on (set to true) by default. Figure 4.19
