I am trying to find some package of Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for solving hyperbolic and parabolic equations.

In my research, I focus on designing new schemes for some very simple equations and boundary condition and doing numerical analysis. Thus, I need the package which is easy for me to do possible modification in algorithm. Moreover, python is better. I am not familiar with C++.

Could anyone tell me what's a suitable package for me?

  • $\begingroup$ The FEniCS python frontend is great for prototyping discretizations and algorithms. However, if you need to assemble things which cannot be straightforwardly written out in a variational sense (e.g. certain limiters, postprocessing techniques, etc.), things may get tricky with Python only. While you can get really far without a single line of C++ you should not be too afraid of learning it ;-). $\endgroup$ – Christian Waluga Aug 1 '16 at 19:44
