A platform for Tokamak simulation
Functional Description: PlaTo (A platform for Tokamak simulation) is a suite of data and softwares dedicated to the geometry and physics of Tokamaks. Plato offers interfaces for reading and handling distributed unstructured meshes, numerical templates for parallel discretizations, interfaces for distributed matrices and linear and non-linear equation solvers. Plato provides meshes and solutions corresponding to equilibrium solutions that can be used as initial data for more complex computations as well as tools for visualization using Visit or Paraview.
