FEM2D_PACK
Finite Element Routines
FEM2D_PACK,
a C library which
implements the finite element method.
The emphasis is on simplicity and clarity.
Only the 2D case is handled, with a choice
of low order triangular and quadrilateral elements.
A few routines are included for computing a "sphere grid",
that is, a finite element mesh on the surface of a sphere.
