The FEniCS Form Compiler FFC provides state-of-the-art automatic and
efficient evaluation of general multilinear forms (variational
formulations) for FEniCS. FFC functions as the form evaluation
system for DOLFIN but can also be used to compile forms for other
FFC works as a compiler for multilinear forms by generating code (C
or C++) for the evaluation of a multilinear form given in
mathematical notation. This new approach to form evaluation makes it
possible to combine generality with efficiency; the form can be given
in mathematical notation and the generated code is as efficient as
hand-optimized code.
This is a dummy package that depends on python3-ffc.
(FFC is no longer available library for Python 2).
