FEniCS is a project for the development of concepts and tools for automated scientific computing, with a focus on automated solution of differential equations by finite element methods. It has a list of features for automated, efficient solution of differential equations, including automated solution of variational problems, automated error control and adaptivity, a comprehensive library of finite elements, high performance linear algebra and many more. FEniCS is organized as a collection of interoperable components that together form the FEniCS Project. These components include the problem-solving environment DOLFIN, the form compiler FFC, the finite element tabulator FIAT, the just-in-time compiler Instant, the code generation interface UFC, the form language UFL and a range of additional components.
