Global Usage of PLUTO code

PLUTO code essentially is designed to numerically solve mixed hyperbolic/parabolic systems of partial differential equations (conservation laws) targeting high Mach number flows in astrophysical fluid dynamics. The freely-distributed PLUTO v4.2 (Aug 2015) can be downloaded from here.

PLUTO code is fully MPI parallelized and have shown ideal scaling up to 10 4 processors.

PLUTO suite of modules?

Wide variety of Physical modules ...

The code is modular and has a flexible structure whereby different numerical algorithms can be separately combined to solve systems of conservation laws using the finite volume or finite difference approach based on Godunov-type schemes.

... with multiple solver options.

Visualization Tool for PLUTO: pyPLUTO

GUI for the pyPLUTO for Quick visualisation.

Python based visualization tool for PLUTO data. The tool supports all data formats generated from PLUTO. The code is completely written in Python v2.7 And also has GUI for loading and plotting of data.
