Mayavi is an open-source, general-purpose, 3D scientific visualization package. It seeks to provide easy and interactive tools for data visualization that fit with the scientific user's workflow. For this purpose, Mayavi provides several entry points: a full-blown interactive application; a Python library with both a MATLAB-like interface focused on easy(More)
Higher order panel methods are used to solve the Laplace equation in the presence of complex geometries. These methods are useful when globally accurate velocity or potential fields are desired as in the case of vortex based fluid flow solvers. This paper develops a fast multipole algorithm to compute velocity fields due to higher order, two-dimensional(More)
Vortex methods offer a grid-free alternative to simulating incompressible, viscous, fluid flows. They require the use of fairly sophisticated algorithms and can be complicated to implement for general flows. This article describes an object-oriented design used to implement a vortex particle based flow solver in two dimensions. We provide an overview of the(More)
