Escript Publisher's description
from Lutz Gross
Solution of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) using Finite Elements (FEM)
Escript is a Python-based environment for implementing mathematical models, in particular those based on coupled, non-linear, time-dependent partial differential equations. It implements the finite element method. The code has been parallelized efficiently with both OpenMP and MPI. Escript/Finley has been used to solve an implicit system with over 50 million unknowns on a medium-sized parallel computer.
Escript/Finley is used through Python. We have created it as a python extension where python objects represent the coefficients and boundary conditions of a partial differential equation, ands store the solution of the equation as well.
What's New in This Release:В· The linux standalone files as well as the debian family files have new packages (3.2.1-2) to replace the (3.2.1-1) versions which were built without netcdf support.
System Requirements:В· Python
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
