DUNE Numerics

DUNE

DUNE, the Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) with grid-based methods. It supports the easy implementation of methods like Finite Elements (FE), Finite Volumes (FV), and also Finite Differences (FD).

DUNE is free software licensed under the GPL (version 2) with a so called “runtime exception” (see license). This licence is similar to the one under which the libstdc++ libraries are distributed. Thus it is possible to use DUNE even in proprietary software.

The underlying idea of DUNE is to create slim interfaces allowing an efficient use of legacy and/or new libraries. Modern C++ programming techniques enable very different implementations of the same concept (i.e. grids, solvers, …) using a common interface at a very low overhead. Thus DUNE ensures efficiency in scientific computations and supports high-performance computing applications.

DUNE 2.5.2 Released

The Dune 2.5.2 maintenance release is now available. You can download the tarballs or checkout the v2.5.2 tag via Git.

Included in the release are the core modules (dune-common, dune-geometry, dune-grid, dune-grid-howto, dune-istl, dune-localfunctions) and several modules from the staging area (dune-functions, dune-typetree, dune-uggrid).

From the Dune core modules, only dune-common, dune-grid and dune-localfunctions had changes from 2.5.1; from the staging modules only dune-uggrid.

Please refer to the release notes for a more detailed listing of what has changed in the new release.

Dune 2.5.2 is a bug fix release to keep Dune 2.5 working for recent systems. It is advised to move to Dune 2.6.

DUNE 2.5.2rc1 Released

The first release candidate for the upcoming 2.5.2 release is now available. You can download the tarballs or checkout the v2.5.2rc1 tag via Git.

From the Dune core modules, only dune-common, dune-grid and dune-localfunctions had changes from 2.5.1; from the staging modules only dune-uggrid was updated.

Please go and test, and report any problems that you encounter.

Dune 2.5.2 is a bug fix release to keep Dune 2.5 working for recent systems. It is advised to move to Dune 2.6.

dune-uggrid 2.6.0 released

A new version of dune-uggrid, the grid manager from the UG finite element software, has been released. The new dune-uggrid 2.6.0 release is compatible with DUNE 2.6 and now allows transfer element data in addition to vertex data during load balancing.

The module can be downloaded from the dune-uggrid page.
