Compilation and usage

Before compilation, make sure that all required external libraries are installed:

  • LATfield2 version 1.1
  • FFTW version 3
  • GNU Scientific Library (GSL) including CBLAS
  • HDF5

Make sure that the include paths are set properly, or add them to the makefile. Also check the compiler settings in the makefile. The code is compiled by typing:

make

A typical command to run a simulation looks like this:

mpirun -np 16 ./gevolution -n 4 -m 4 -s settings.ini
