The Advanced Simulation Library (ASL) is a free and open source multiphysics simulation software package.

Its computational engine is based, among others, on the Lattice Boltzmann Methods and is written in OpenCL which enable extraordinarily efficient deployment on a variety of massively parallel architectures, ranging from inexpensive FPGAs, DSPs and GPUs up to heterogeneous clusters and supercomputers. The engine is hidden entirely behind C++ classes, so that no OpenCL knowledge is required from application programmers.

ASL can be utilized to model various coupled physical and chemical phenomena and employed in a multitude of fields: computational fluid dynamics, virtual sensing, industrial process data validation and reconciliation, image-guided surgery, computer-aided engineering, high-performance scientific computing, etc...

This package contains the development files.

NFFT3 is a software library written in C for computing nonequispaced fast Fourier and related transformations. In detail, NFFT3 implements:

1) The nonequispaced fast Fourier transform (NFFT)

  • the forward transform (NFFT)
  • the adjoint transform (adjoint NFFT)

2) Generalisations of the NFFT

  • to arbitrary knots in time and frequency domain (NNFFT)
  • to the sphere S^2 (NFSFT)
  • to the hyperbolic cross (NSFFT)
  • to real-valued data, i.e. (co)sine transforms, (NFCT, NFST)
  • to the rotation group (NFSOFT)

3) Generalised inverses based on iterative methods, e.g. CGNR, CGNE

4) Applications in

  • medical imaging (i) magnetic resonance imaging (ii) computerised tomography
  • summation schemes (i) fast Gauss transform (FGT) (ii) singular kernels (iii) zonal kernels
  • polar FFT, discrete Radon transform, ridgelet transform

This package provides the development files for the NFFT library.

PyFAI is a Python library for azimuthal integration; it allows the conversion of diffraction images taken with 2D detectors like CCD cameras into X-Ray powder patterns that can be used by other software like Rietveld refinement tools (i.e. FullProf), phase analysis or texture analysis.

As PyFAI is a library, its main goal is to be integrated in other tools like PyMca, LiMa or EDNA. To perform online data analysis, the precise description of the experimental setup has to be known. This is the reason why PyFAI includes geometry optimization code working on "powder rings" of reference samples. Alternatively, PyFAI can also import geometries fitted with other tools like Fit2D.

PyFAI has been designed to work with any kind of detector with any geometry (transmission, reflection, off-axis, ...). It uses the Python library FabIO to read most images taken by diffractometer.

Pythonic wrapper around FFTW, the speedy FFT library. The ultimate aim is to present a unified interface for all the possible transforms that FFTW can perform.

Both the complex DFT and the real DFT are supported, as well as arbitrary axes of abitrary shaped and strided arrays, which makes it almost feature equivalent to standard and real FFT functions of numpy.fft (indeed, it supports the clongdouble dtype which numpy.fft does not).

This package provides the Python 3 binding.
