EDSL for PDE solver composing


Latest Release License Downloads Format Build


OpFlow (运筹) is an embedded domain specific language (EDSL) for partial differential equation (PDE) solver composing. It adopts the meta programming facilities provided by modern C++ extensively to provide an expressive front-end user interface. With expression templates and stencil auto-generation, OpFlow is able to perform both explicit expression evaluation and implicit linear system solving. With isolated expression, operator & evaluation engine's implementation, OpFlow makes the algorithm, data structure and execution scheduler fully decoupled. OpFlow's advantages are:

  • Fully static. No dynamic dispatching on the critical path
  • Zero-cost abstraction. All operations are well-defined at compile time and force inlined
  • Automatic parallelization. Partition & evaluation of expressions are automatically parallelized by user defined strategies
  • Implicit equation solving. OpFlow can solve arbitrary user provided implicit equations as long as they are well-defined
  • Header only & C++ embedded. OpFlow itself is header-only and embedded in C++. It's straight forward to integrate OpFlow into existing numerical codes
  • Mathematical API notations. The front-end interface of OpFlow is very similar to mathematical notations. Little language noise will occur while writing equations
  • Proper level of abstraction. OpFlow tries to eliminate the need to write bare schemes while keeping all the transformations & operations performed at the front-end. It's straight forward to see how each term is discretized, while keeping all expressions in a unified fashion. This is different from packing all things into modules, or looping over each element on the front stage.
