The Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment (Dune)

Prof. Oliver Sander (IGPM, RWTH Aachen)

Abstract:
=====

Dune is a set of C++ libraries for grid-based numerical methods for PDEs.
Each library covers one aspect of PDE simulation software such as grids,
linear algebra, or shape functions.  The emphasis is on flexibility and
efficiency.  For each topic, an abstract interface is declared, and the user
can choose between a number of different implementations.  This allows
to always use the best data structure for each implementation at hardly
any additional cost.  Dune is free software and runs on a large variety
of platforms.  We present the concepts and the core libraries, and then
describe extension modules for domain decomposition and level set
methods.
