What it is: A C++ software library supporting the creation of finite element codes and an open community of users and developers. (Learn more.)
Mission: To provide well-documented tools to build finite element codes for a broad variety of PDEs, from laptops to supercomputers.
Vision: To create an open, inclusive, participatory community providing users and developers with a state-of-the-art, comprehensive software library that constitutes the go-to solution for all finite element problems.
The inclusion of our software into an industry standard benchmark testsuite will lead to better support of compilers and machines for the kind of program we write, in particular for unstructured hierarchical mesh computations. This will in turn help make our codes run faster on future systems.
The primary means of communicating with deal.II developers and users is by email:
The deal.II discussion group is used by developers to announce new features and by users to ask questions about how to do things with deal.II. This is also the forum to post bug reports.
The development of the library is done on the github.com deal.II project using Issues and Pull-Requests.
We appreciate comments and suggestions on deal.II. They can be addressed to either of the addresses above, depending on their public or private nature.
