K_6 minors in 6-connected graphs of bounded tree-width
For these vectors, Lk combines the effect of applying each face’s mass matrix, embedding the resulting facial values back into a volume vector, and applying the inverse volume mass matrix.

Since it “lifts” facial contributions to volume contributions, it is called the lifting matrix.
High-Order Discontinuous Galerkin Methods by GPU Metaprogramming
This representation allows us to find the facial values used in (27.5) by picking the facial nodes from the volume field. (This contrasts with a modal implementation in which DOFs represent expansion coefficients in a non-Lagrange basis.
High-Order Discontinuous Galerkin Methods by GPU Metaprogramming
Finding the facial information to compute (27.5) requires a different approach in these schemes.) Observe that most of DG’s stages are element-local in the sense that they do not use information from neighboring elements.
