libMesh For Mac Publisher's description
Free and open source C++ Finite Element Library
The libMesh library provides a framework for the numerical simulation of partial differential equations using arbitrary unstructured discretizations on serial and parallel platforms.
libMesh currently supports 1D, 2D, and 3D steady and transient finite element simulations. The library makes use of high-quality, existing software whenever possible.
PETSc is used for the solution of linear systems on both serial and parallel platforms, and LASPack is included with the library to provide linear solver support on serial machines. An optional interface to SLEPc is also provided for solving both standard and generalized eigenvalue problems.
