for Mesh Interfaces:
Report on the Argonne TSTT Meeting
Software interoperability is a big issue in the computing community.
One of the TSTT (Terascale Simulation Tools and Technologies) emphases
is the creation of a common mesh interface which will allow seamless
interoperability and data exchange among many applications and to provide
fundamentally new capabilities. TSTT will develop new capabilities as
needed within these tools to provide compatible functionality and to
support complex geometries, high-order discretization techniques, and
adaptive methods. I have attended the first meeting to setup the mesh
interface and will report what has been discussed at that meeting.
