Getting started with Dedalus

Tutorial Notebooks

This tutorial on using Dedalus consists of three short IPython notebooks, which can be downloaded and ran interactively, or viewed on-line through the links below.

The notebooks cover the basics of setting up and interacting with the primary facets of the code, culminating in the setup and simulation of the 1D KdV-Burgers equation.

Example Notebooks

Below are several notebooks that walk through the setup and execution of more complicated multidimensional example problems.

Example Scripts

A wider range of examples are available under the examples subdirectory of the main code repository, which you can browse here. These examples cover a wider range of use cases, including larger multidimensional problems designed for parallel execution. Basic post-processing and plotting scripts are also provided with many problems.

These simulation and processing scripts may be useful as a starting point for implementing different problems and equation sets.

Contributions & Suggestions

If you have a script that you’d like to make available as an example, or to request an additional example covering different functionality or use cases, please get in touch on the dev list!
