I have started work on a database for chemfem with simple test cases to test the performance and functionality of the code. The first part of the database consists of tests for the solution of algebraic equations. The tests are performed on 1..E finite elements, 1..P polynomial degree and 1..N algebraic equations. so far, so good!

The next part of the database is a database with (systems of) ordinary differential equations.

Great news! I've just put the first release of chemfem online! All the basic functionalities are there and you can now use it to calculate the solution of algebraic and differential equations on a 2d mesh. All that is needed now is a good tutorial and a user manual together with some example test cases.

The first sourceforge release of chemfem is almost ready! There are a few things that I want to include before submitting it to sourceforge. The most important is that the code should run out of the box: Just type make and it should compile. Just run the executable and it should give you a solution. And most importantly: you should be able to solve general equations without recompiling. when this is working, version 0.1 is good to go. After that, the focus will be first on speed and on handling the different types of differential equations, especially nonlinear ones.
