New FEniCS Tutorial coming soon

Hans Petter Langtangen and I are working on a new, revised, and extended version of the FEniCS Tutorial. The plan is two volumes to cover both basic and advanced FEniCS programming. Here’s a sample from Chapter 3: A Gallery of PDE Solvers:

And here’s a bit of code to go along with the movie.

    Hello Dr. Logg,
    We are very grateful to you and your associates for making fenics open source with so many tutorials and demos. I am a MSc student trying to implement wave equation in elasoplastic media using fenics. I am finding it very difficult owing to the lack of detailed documentation and undocumented demos. I know the team stays very busy with so much work but it would be great if you could find some time for development and refinement of FSM app in future.
    Thanks and Regards,

      The new tutorial will contain many new examples. Maybe not exactly the one you are looking for… but hopefully it will help you figure out how to implement your particular problem in FEniCS.

    Hi Dr. Logg, I was wondering if there was an update on the release of the new tutorial. Thanks, Jonas
