   Package name: freefem++

FreeFem++ is an implementation of a language dedicated to the finite
element method. It enables you to solve Partial Differential
Equations (PDE) easily.

Problems involving PDE from several branches of physics such as
fluid-structure interactions require interpolations of data on
several meshes and their manipulation within one program. FreeFem++
includes a fast quadtree-based interpolation algorithm and a language
for the manipulation of these data on multiple meshes. It contains also  a 
powerful mesh  generation and adaption tool integrated seamlessly in FreeFem++ 
called bamg.

FreeFem++ is written in C++ and the FreeFem++ language is a C++
idiom allowing for a smooth learning curve.

Note that FreeFem++ comes with a copy of arpack++, it will need to be removed 
from the tarball until the arpack{++} licensing issues are resolved.
