Five Days Workshop on Parallel Finite element Computing using ParMooN

Oct 14 – 18, 2019, Department of Computational and Data Sciences, IISc, Bangalore

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an introduction to finite element method, parallel finite element data structure and its efficient implementation in ParMooN (Parallel Mathematics and object oriented Numerics), an open source parallel finite element package. Further, the implementation of  the parallel (MPI/OpenMPI) geometric multigrid solver  will also be taught. Parallel finite element solution of scalar and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in two- and three-dimensions using ParMooN ( will also be a part of this workshop.
