New This Release
This release of PyElastica uses the Python package
numba to enable just in time compilation leading to a ~8x speedup over the previous version. Numba is not required to run PyElastica and if numba is not installed, PyElastica will defualt to the non-numba implementation. As such, if you wish to take advantage of the speed-up afforded by numba, please be sure to install it separately.
Future releases of PyElastica will require numba and we will no longer be maintaining the non-numba code beyond this release.
We have also included an example script for visualizing PyElastica simulations using POVray. This script is located in the examples folder (
PyElastica is available for download on GitHub
