Welcome to the dealii wiki! This wiki collects explanations and advice that do not quite fit in the manual (though the two documents link to each other in several places).
A word of caution for contributors: due to limitations with Github's wiki implementation, the table of contents for each individual page is manually generated. In particular, the shell script at
(with a little postprocessing) generated the FAQ table of contents. If you add new entries, then please also update the table of contents accordingly.
Step by step on how to update the TOC:
git clone https://github.com/tjhei/github-markdown-toc cd github-markdown-toc ./gh-md-toc https://github.com/dealii/dealii/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Question
and replace the TOC with the output.
