ALBERTA

ALBERTA is an Adaptive multiLevel finite element toolbox using Bisectioning refinement and Error control by Residual Techniques for scientific Applications. ALBERTA, a sequential adaptive finite-element toolbox, is being used widely in the fields of scientific and engineering computation, especially in the numerical simulation of electromagnetics. But the nature of sequentiality has become the bottle-neck while solving large scale problems. So we develop a parallel adaptive finite-element package based on ALBERTA, using ParMETIS and PETSc. The package is able to deal with any problem that ALBERT solved. Furthermore, it is suitable for distributed memory parallel computers including PC clusters
