Information for developers of the code, and for people who want to learn how the technique works

You can get a very simple 1D version of a demo code (there is one in Fortran and one in Python):

git clone --recursive https://github.com/SPECFEM/specfem1d.git

We also have simple 3D demo source codes that implement the SEM in a single, small program, in directory utils/small_SEM_solvers_in_Fortran_and_C_without_MPI_to_learn of the specfem3d package. They are useful to learn how the spectral-element method works, and how to write or modify a code to implement it. Also useful to test new ideas by modifying these simple codes to run some tests. We also have a similar, even simpler, demo source code for the 2D case in directory utils/small_SEM_solver_in_Fortran_without_MPI_to_learn of the specfem2d package.

For information on how to contribute to the code, i.e., for how to make your modifications, additions or improvements part of the official package, see https://github.com/SPECFEM/specfem3d/wiki .
