45  This document is a guide of how to use the \escript software and  \escript is a python-based environment for implementing mathematical models, in particular those based on coupled, non-linear, time-dependent partial differential equations.
46  associated tools.  
47    It consists of four major components
48    \begin{itemize}
49    \item \escript core library
50    \item finite element solver \finley (which uses fast vendor-supplied solvers or our paso linear solver library)
51    \item the meshing interface \pycad
52    \item VTK visualization interface \pyvisi
53    \item model library modellib
54    \end{itemize}
55    The current version supports parallelization through both MPI for distributed memory and OpenMP for distributed shared memory.
