The rational tetrahedral scheme [2] could not be modified to obtain a scheme. The key idea in [7] is to incorporate perpendicular cross-boundary deriva­ tives directly. Let S be the simplex in question, and let F be a facet of S. We think of all faces of S as embedded in low dimensional affine subspaces, so that any fine can intersect a face even though the fine may not intersect the simplex S itself. The anchor of F is that facet other than F that forms the smallest angle with F. With a point χ and the facet F we associate the straight line through χ perpendicular to F.
