A declarative language describing ordinary differential equations.

Project description

CI status coverage

Gotran - General ODE TRAnslator


  • provides a Python interface to declare arbitrary ODEs.

  • provides an interface for generating CUDA/C/C++/OpenCL/Julia/Python/Matlab code for a number of functions including the right hand side and symbolic generation of a Jacobian.

  • is intentionally lightweight, and could be interfaced by other Python libraries needing functionalities to abstract a general ODE.

  • depends on NumPy, and on SymPy. See further instructions in INSTALL

  • can load models from external ODE description files such as CellML


You can install gotran through pip

python -m pip install gotran

or if you want to work with the latest version you can install the developement version by either cloning the repository and run
