Pythonic scripting interface for Comsol Multiphysics

Comsol is a commercial software application that is widely used in science and industry for research and development. It excels at modeling almost any (multi-)physics problem by solving the governing set of partial differential equations via the finite-element method. It comes with a modern graphical user interface to set up simulation models and can be scripted from Matlab or its native Java API.

MPh brings the dearly missing power of Python to the world of Comsol. It leverages the Java bridge provided by JPype to access the Comsol API and wraps it in a layer of pythonic ease-of-use. The Python wrapper covers common scripting tasks, such as loading a model from a file, modifying parameters, importing data, to then run the simulation, evaluate the results, and export them.

Comsol models are marked by their .mph file extension, which stands for multi-physics. Hence the name of this library. It is open-source and in no way affiliated with Comsol Inc., the company that develops and sells the simulation software.
