MAdLib is a mesh adaptation library. This is an important tool for numerical simulations in particular in the context of finite element 
simulation. At the moment Debian is missing such a tool. This package is almost ready to b uploaded in the git repository of pkgscicomp.
Note that MAdLib is strongly related to Gmsh : it uses Gmsh to ensure that the geometry is preserved while adapting the mesh.
MAdLib is a library that performs global node repositioning and mesh adaptation by local mesh modifications on tetrahedral or triangular 
meshes. It is designed to frequently adapt the mesh in transient computations. MAdLib is written in C++. 
The adaptation procedure is driven by two objectives: 
 - make the edge lengths as close as possible to a (non-homogenous) prescribed length, 
 - maintain a satisfying element quality everywhere. 
MAdLib can therefore be used in transient computations in order to maintain a satisfying element quality (moving boundaries, multiphase 
flows with interface tracking, ...) or/and to apply selective refinements and coarsenings (error estimators based, interface capturing: 
shocks, free surfaces, ...).
