ELLPACK
Software for Solving Elliptic Problems
ELLPACK is a very high level, portable system for solving elliptic boundary value
problems. One can solve routine problems by simply writing them down and naming the
methods to be used. One can solve harder problems by using the problem solving
modules in the flexible ELLPACK framework. The ELLPACK language is an
easytolearn extension of Fortran: this provides greatly reduced coding for most
of the computation, but still allows one to do special processing. ELLPACK
incorporates over 50 problem solving modules, including some of the best and most
current software in the world. A knowledgeable user can even tailor ELLPACK itself
by adding new problem solving or analysis modules.
ELLPACK was first released in 1985 and since that time the
''ELLPACK Group'' has developed more sophisticated PDE solving
systems and problem solving environments. See, for example,

Parallel
ELLPACK (also called //ELLPACK)
A problem solving environment for elliptic and parabolic PDEs
including special facilities for using parallel/distributed
computers.

WebPDELab
A web server for PDELab, an advanced problem
solving environment for PDE based applications.

SoftLab
A system for building virtual laboratories for computational
science and engineering.

HPC Problem Solving Environments
A research project to develop scalable libraries, the software
infrastructure, and parallel reuse methodology for PDE based
applications.
