   Description     : eXtensible Multi-Dimensional Simulator

XMDS is a code generator that integrates equations, from Ordinary 
Differential Equations (ODEs) up to stochastic Partial Differential 
Equations (PDEs). You write them down in human readable form in an XML 
file, and it goes away and writes and compiles a C++ program that 
integrates those equations as fast as it can possibly be done in your 

XMDS 2 is a major upgrade rewritten in Python which is faster and far 
more versatile than previous versions, allowing the efficient 
integration of almost any initial value problem on regular domains.

Note that a xmds package exists in Debian for version 1. The upstream 
authors renamed the program to xmds2 in order to allow the co-existence 
of both versions in the system.  They did that because the format of the 
*.xmds files changed in version 2 and there still may be users around who 
need version 1.  The issue of having both versions packaged in Debian has 
been discussed in the debian-science mailing list:

BTW, the maintainer of the xmds2 package will be the Debian Science Team.

A preliminary version of the Debian package can be built with 
git-buildpackage from the Git repository at:
