57 \escript is a python-based environment for implementing mathematical models, in particular those based on coupled, non-linear, time-dependent partial differential equations.
58
59 It consists of four major components
60 \begin{itemize}
61 \item \escript core library
62 \item finite element solver \finley (which uses fast vendor-supplied solvers or our paso linear solver library)
63 \item the meshing interface \pycad
64 % \item VTK visualization interface \pyvisi
65 \item a model library.
66 \end{itemize}
67 The current version supports parallelization through both MPI for distributed memory and OpenMP for distributed shared memory.
68
69 \emph{Please see Chapter~\ref{EXECUTION} for changes to the way to launch \escript scripts.}
70 For more info on this and other changes from previous releases see Appendix~\ref{app:changes}.
71
72 If you use this software in your research, then we would appreciate (but do not require) a citation.
73 Some relevant references can be found in Appendix~\ref{app:ourrefs}.
