    Description: LIbrary for the Finite Element method

Life is a C++ library for partial differential equation solves using 
generalized Galerkin methods i.e. fem, hp/fem, spectral methods. The main 
features are: 
 o handles 1D, 2D and 3D geometries 
 o supports various geometric entities: simplices and hypercubes
 o supports various polynomial families: Lagrange, Legendre, Dubiner
 o supports from low to high order approximations in space, time and geometry
 o provides functional mathematical concepts : operators, function spaces,   
   elements of function spaces... 
 o provides a Domain Specific Embedded Language (DSEL) in C++ for variational
   formulations, integration and projection 

A version of the Debian files is already available on the pkg-scicomp svn
