The Trixi framework is a collaborative scientific effort to provide open source tools for adaptive high-order numerical simulations of hyperbolic PDEs in Julia. Besides the core algorithms, the framework also includes mesh and visualization tools. Moreover, it includes utilities such as Julia wrappers of mature libraries written in other programming languages.
This page gives an overview of the different activities that, together, constitute the Trixi framework on GitHub.
