Add Nedelec edge elements of type I and order 1

Daniel Bauer requested to merge bauerd/curl-curl into master

Nedelec elements [1] are implemented in class N1E1VectorFunction. They are useful for problems in H(curl). The notation follows the Periodic Table of the Finite Elements [2]. Additionally, the hybrid smoother by Hiptmair [3] is implemented.
