The Dune framework: Basic concepts and recent developments

This recently published open-access paper “The Dune framework: Basic concepts and recent developments” presents the basic concepts and the module structure of the Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment (DUNE) and reflects on recent developments and general changes that happened since the release of the first Dune version in 2007 and the main papers describing that state (Bastian et al. 2008). This discussion is accompanied with a description of various advanced features, such as coupling of domains and cut cells, grid modifications such as adaptation and moving domains, high order discretizations and node level performance, non-smooth multigrid methods, and multiscale methods. A brief discussion on current and future development directions of the framework concludes the paper.
