Description: compiler for finite element variational forms

The FEniCS Form Compiler FFC provides state-of-the-art automatic and
efficient evaluation of general multilinear forms (variational
formulations) for FEniCS. FFC functions as the form evaluation system
for DOLFIN but can also be used to compile forms for other systems.

FFC works as a compiler for multilinear forms by generating code (C or
C++) for the evaluation of a multilinear form given in mathematical
notation. This new approach to form evaluation makes it possible to
combine generality with efficiency; the form can be given in mathematical
notation and the generated code is as efficient as hand-optimized code.
