SOLVCON is a collection of Python-based conservation-law solvers that use the space-time Conservation Element and Solution Element (CESE) method [Chang95]. SOLVCON targets at solving problems that can be formulated as a system of first-order, linear or non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) [Lax73]:
where is the unknown vector, , , and the Jacobian matrices, and the source term. SOLVCON is designed to be a software framework to house various solvers. The design of SOLVCON is discussed in [Chen11].
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/solvcon/solvcon
SOLVCON has the following dependencies: gcc 4.3+, SCons 2+, Python 2.7, Cython 0.16+, Numpy 1.5+, LAPACK, NetCDF 4+, SCOTCH 6.0+, Nose 1.0+, Paramiko 1.14+, boto 2.29.1+, gmsh 2.5+, and VTK 5.6+. You can install them by running the scripts aptget.*.sh (Debian/Ubuntu) or conda.sh (Miniconda/Anaconda) provided in the contrib/ directory.
The binary part of SOLVCON should be built with SCons:
After worth, it can be built with distutils:
python setup.py build_ext --inplace
SOLVCON needs not explicit installation. Setting the environment variables $PATH and $PYTHONPATH is sufficient.
cd doc make html
The built document will be available at doc/build/html/.
Tests should be run with Nose:
Another set of tests are collected in ftests/ directory, and can be run with:
Some tests in ftests/ involve remote procedure call (RPC) that uses ssh. You need to set up the public key authentication to properly run them.
A hard way to install the dependencies is to build everything from source with the scripts provided in the ground/ directory:
cd ground ../contrib/get make all cd .. source opt/etc/scvars.sh
A directory opt/ will be created for the binaries. The last line will enable the runtime environment. It also export an environment variable SCROOT that points to opt/.
If we don’t even have a compatible gcc, scripts in the soil/ directory can be used:
cd soil ../contrib/get make cd .. source opt/etc/scgccvars.sh
$SCROOT/etc/scvars.sh and $SCROOT/etc/scgccvars.sh must be separately sourced. The two sets of packages reside in different directories.
