Abstract

The IFISS Incompressible Flow & Iterative Solver Software package contains software which can be run with MATLAB or Octave to create a computational laboratory for the interactive numerical study of incompressible flow problems. It includes algorithms for discretization by mixed finite element methods and a posteriori error estimation of the computed solutions, together with state-of-the-art preconditioned iterative solvers for the resulting discrete linear equation systems. In this paper we give a flavour of the code's main features and illustrate its applicability using several case studies. We aim to show that IFISS can be a valuable tool in both teaching and research.
