DoGPack is a software package for solving hyperbolic conservation laws using a modal discontinuous Galerkin discretizations. It has been designed with easy extensibility, performance, and exploration in mind. The main parts of the code are written in C++. This code outputs to files that can be read and processed by MATLAB or Python scripts that are part of the DoGPack distribution.

DoGPack features:

  • Solves general hyperbolic PDEs in 1D and 2D, including both Cartesian and triangle-based unstructued grids.
  • Basic user inputs are handled through a parameters.ini input file.
  • Several examples including advection, shallow water, compressible Euler, and ideal MHD are part of the current release.
  • Vizualization is done through MATLAB or Python scripts that are part of the DoGPack distribution.

You can get the latest development version of DoGPack from https://bitbucket.org/imsejae/dogpack.

DoGPack: Discontinuous Galerkin Package


In order to run examples on unstructured meshes, DoGPack requires a mesh generator that produces a mesh in a format that can be read by the DoGPack routines. MeshGenC++ is such a mesh generator and can be obtained at the following website: http://www.dogpack-code.org/MeshGenC++/.
