By Magnus Thorstein Sletholt,Jo Erskine Hannay,Dietmar Pfahl,Hans Petter Langtangen
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 24-37
The development of scientific software has similarities with processes that follow the software engineering
How do scientists develop and use scientific software?
Found in: Software Engineering for Computational Science and Engineering, ICSE Workshop on
By Jo Erskine Hannay, Carolyn MacLeod, Janice Singer, Hans Petter Langtangen, Dietmar Pfahl, Greg Wilson
Issue Date:May 2009
pp. 1-8
New knowledge in science and engineering relies increasingly on results produced by scientific software. Therefore, knowing how scientists develop and use software in their research is critical to assessing the necessity for improving current development p...
A literature review of agile practices and their effects in scientific software development
Found in: Proceeding of the 4th international workshop on Software engineering for computational science and engineering (SECSE '11)

Issue Date:May 2011
pp. 1-9
The nature of scientific research and the development of scientific software have similarities with processes that follow the agile manifesto: responsiveness to change and collaboration are of the utmost importance. But how well do current scientific softw...
Solving systems of partial differential equations using object-oriented programming techniques with coupled heat and fluid flow as example
Found in: ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software (TOMS)
By Hans Petter Langtangen, Otto Munthe
Issue Date:March 1988
pp. 1-26
This paper exploits object-oriented implementation techniques to facilitate the development computer codes for solving systems of coupled partial differential equations. We show how to build a simulator for equation systems by merging independent solvers f...

By Are Magnus Bruaset, Hans Petter Langtangen
Issue Date:March 1988
pp. 50-80
We explain why we feel that the comparison betwen Common Lisp and Fortran in a recent article by Fateman et al. in this journal is not entirely fair.
