Linear Algebra Library

ALBANY is a C++ program which allows the implementation of finite element PDE solvers for a variety of fundamental research applications, including LCM (Laboratory for Computational Mechanics), QCAD (Quantum Computer Aided Design) and FELIX (Finite Element for Land Ice eXperiments).

The highlight of Albany is the PDE assembly. The template-based generic programming approach allows developers to just program for residual equations, and all manner of derivatives and polynomial propogations get automatically computed with no additional development effort.
