libceed: efficient, extensible discretization

This crate provides an interface to libCEED, which is a performance-portable library for extensible element-based discretization for partial differential equations and related computational problems. The formulation is algebraic and intended to be lightweight and easy to incorporate in higher level abstractions. See the libCEED user manual for details on interface concepts and extensive examples.

libCEED operator decomposition


To call libCEED from a Rust package, the following Cargo.toml can be used.

libceed = "0.9.0"

For a development version of the libCEED Rust bindings, use the following Cargo.toml.

libceed = { git = "https://github.com/CEED/libCEED", branch = "main" }
extern crate libceed;

fn main() {
    let ceed = libceed::Ceed::init("/cpu/self/ref");
    let xc = ceed.vector_from_slice(&[0., 0.5, 1.0]).unwrap();
    let xs = xc.view();
    assert_eq!(xs[..], [0., 0.5, 1.0]);

This crate provides modules for each object, but they are usually created from the Ceed object as with the vector above. The resource string passed to Ceed::init is used to identify the "backend", which includes algorithmic strategies and hardware such as NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. See the libCEED documentation for more information on available backends.


Examples of libCEED can be found in the libCEED repository under the examples/rust directory.
