Seminar Basilisk
St├ęphane Popinet


I will present the general concepts behind Basilisk, an entirely new code which is the successor of Gerris. This new framework first targets
applications similar to that of Gerris (interfacial flows, electrohydrodynamics, non-Newtonian rheologies, geophysical fluid dynamics) while providing a much simpler programming and algorithmic interface, also extensible to a wider range of applications. Simultaneously, this simplicity leads to a much more efficient implementation which can flexibly be tuned to the many quirks of recent computer architectures. In the same spirit as Gerris, Basilisk is Free Software and designed to encourage collaboration on the usage and development of advanced numerical methods for fluid dynamics, with a particular emphasis on the quality of documentation.
Go back to the agenda.
