Callable abstract base class to be used as a callback to provide the solver with a basis for the system's Jacobian's nullspace (the kernel or the "zero energy modes") or nearnullspace (the "low energy modes").
A nullspace can be used to solve a degenerate problem iteratively (e.g., with a Krylov subspace method). A near nullspace can be used by an Algebraic Multigrid (AMG) preconditioner to construct smoothed aggregationlike coarse spaces.

This function will be called to compute the subspace basis (e.g., nullspace or nearnullspace).
It must be implemented by the user in a derived class.
