PETSc: Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation

PETSc
Suite of data structures and routines for the scalable solution of scientific applications

PETSc (Portable, Extensible Toolkit for Scientific Computation) is a suite of data structures and routines for the scalable (parallel) solution of scientific applications modeled by partial differential equations. It employs the MPI standard for all message-passing communication.
