Precompiled Meep packages for Ubuntu

Precompiled packages of Meep are available for Ubuntu as meep. The Ubuntu 16.10 package is available in the science repository. We highly recommend using Ubuntu as the Meep software and all of its dependencies can be installed using just one line:

sudo apt-get install meep h5utils

You can also install the parallel version of Meep which is based on Open-MPI using:

sudo apt-get install meep-mpi-default

Python User Interface

A native Python user interface for Meep is currently under development by Simpetus.

A non-native version was developed by the Photonics Research Group at Ghent University, in particular thanks to Emmanuel Lambert, Martin Fiers, Shavkat Nizamov, Martijn Tassaert, Peter Bienstman, and Wim Bogaerts. This project is now maintained by Filip Dominec.
