# NGSolve

### From Wiki

NGSolve is a general purpose finite element library. It is opensource under the LGPL license. NGSolve must be linked to a mesh-handler such as Netgen. It supports basic application classes (heat flow, linear elasticity, electromagnetics), and and be extended by several modules (fluid dynamics, wave equations, mechanics, ...)

Features of NGSolve

- Elements of arbitrary order for any shape (segm, trig, quad, tet, prism, pyramid, hex)
- Scalar elements and vector-valued elements for H(curl) and H(div)
- Solvers for Heat-flow, elasticity, Stokes, Maxwell, etc. etc.
- Iterative solvers with multigrid preconditioning
- Error estimators and adaptive mesh refinement
- Intensively object oriented (C++ expression templates)

NGSolve is available from sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ngsolve
