Nektar++ is an open-source framework that provides a flexible, high-performance and scalable platform for the development of solvers for partial differential equations using the high-order spectral/hp element method. In particular, Nektar++ aims to overcome the complex implementation challenges that are often associated with high-order methods, thereby allowing them to be more readily used in a wide range of application areas. In this presentation we will first provide some motivation behind the spectral/hp element method and the development of Nektar++. We will then provide some background on the code design and finally show some of the more challenging applications areas we have been tackling.

The presentation will be given by three of the four team leaders of the project namely, Spencer Sherwin, Chris Cantwell and David Moxey.
