[ANN] PySPH-1.0a6: Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics with Python
I am pleased to release PySPH version 1.0a6.
PySPH is an open source (BSD licensed) framework for Smoothed Particle
Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulations. It is implemented in Python and the
performance critical parts are implemented in Cython/OpenCL. A wide variety of
SPH formulations are available and new ones can be easily added.
PySPH allows users to write their high-level code in pure Python. This Python
code is automatically converted to high-performance Cython or OpenCL which is
compiled and executed. PySPH can be configured to work seamlessly with OpenMP,
OpenCL, and MPI.
- Initial support for transparent execution on a GPU via OpenCL.
- Many feature enhancements to support various particle methods.
- Allow particle array properties to have strides.
- Improved documentation.
- Generalized code generation tools.
- Several new examples.
- Several new SPH schemes have been added.
- Many bugs have been fixed.
