p4est website  

The p4est software library enables the dynamic management of a collection of adaptive octrees, conveniently called a forest of octrees. p4est is designed to work in parallel and scales to hundreds of thousands of processor cores. It is free software released under GNU General Public Licence version 2, or (at your option) any later version.

Environment Modules

Run module spider p4est to find out what environment modules are available for this application.

System Variables

  • HPC_P4EST_DIR - installation directory


If you publish research that uses p4est you have to cite it as follows:

Carsten Burstedde, Lucas C. Wilcox, and Omar Ghattas, p4est: Scalable Algorithms for Parallel Adaptive Mesh Refinement on Forests of Octrees. Published in SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing 33 no. 3 (2011), pages 1103-1133
