esys.escript is a python-based environment for implementing mathematical models, in particular those based on coupled, non-linear, time-dependent partial differential equations.

It consists of four major components

The current version supports parallelization through both MPI for distributed memory and OpenMP for distributed shared memory. The esys.pyvisi module from previous releases has been deprecated. For more info on this and other changes from previous releases see Appendix A.2.
