first of all my thanks to Andreas for making Hedge code available.
I am looking for a solution to do some DG analysis in the field of solid
mechanics, and Hedge looked promising, as I am pretty accustomed to Python.
However by looking at the documentation I am not really sure if it is really
the tool for me, nor if the effort I would need to make it work as I wish
would be sensible or not.
I am interested in solid mechanics problems which have solutions with evolving
discontinuities across some subdomain, usually a surface or a line ( I am
thinking of crack propagation inside bodies).
I know there many techniques to address allow for such a feature in the
solution, so I am wondering if Hedge have some built-in support for this kind
In case it hasn't and if you are familiar with these technique, do you think
it would be hard to modify the code to model problems like the one mentioned
