A discretization module providing an implementation of mathematical abstractions to solve PDEs on parallel computers including local grid adaptivity, dynamic load balancing, and higher order discretization schemes
DUNE-FEM is a Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment module which defines interfaces for implementing discretization methods like Finite Element Methods (FEM) and Finite Volume Methods (FV) and Discontinuous Galerkin Methods (DG).
DUNE-FEM requires a recent C++ compiler (e.g. g++ or clang), cmake, pkg-config (see DUNE installation for details) and depends on the following DUNE modules:
The following DUNE modules are suggested:
The following software is optional:
