Numerical Utilities

Project Description

The nutils project is a collaborative programming effort aimed at the creation of a general purpose python programming library for setting up finite element computations. Identifying features are a heavily object oriented design, strict separation of topology and geometry, and CAS-like function arithmetic such as found in maple and mathematica. Primary design goals are:

  • Readability. Finite element scripts built on top of nutils should focus on work flow and maths, unobscured by finite element infrastructure.
  • Flexibility. The nutils are tools; they do not enforce a strict work flow. Missing components can be added locally without loosing interoperability.
  • Compatibility. Exposed objects are of native python type or allow for easy conversion to leverage third party tools.
  • Speed. Nutils are self-optimizing and support parallel computation. Typical scripting inefficiencies are discouraged by design.

The nutils are under active development, and are presently in use for academic research by Phd and MSc students.
