Minev-Ethier test

The esact solution of Minev-Ethier [ME98] is defined on $\Omega=[-0.5, 0.5$^3] by:

$\begin{eqnarray} u_1 &=& -e^x\sin(y+z) - e^z\cos(x+y)\\ u_2 &=& -e^y\sin(z+x) - e^x\cos(y+z)\\ u_3 &=& -e^z\sin(x+y) - e^y\cos(z+x)\\ p &=& -0.5e^{2x} - 0.5e^{2y} - 0.5e^{2z}\\\nonumber && -\sin(x+y)\cos(z+x)e^{y+z}\\\nonumber && -\sin(y+z)\cos(x+y)e^{z+x}\\\nonumber && -\sin(z+x)\cos(y+z)e^{x+y}\nonumber \end{eqnarray}$

External forces are calculated using exact solution in the Stokes / Navier-Stokes equations.
