GAIO - Global Analysis of Invariant Objects

GAIO is a software package for the global numerical analysis of dynamical systems and optimization problems based on set oriented techniques. It may e.g. be used to compute invariant sets, invariant manifolds, invariant measures and almost invariant sets in dynamical systems and to compute the globally optimal solutions of both scalar and multiobjective problems.

PARTY

The problem of partitioning a graph into a number of pieces is one of the fundamental tasks in computer science and occurs in several applications like parallel programming or VLSI design.Finding optimal partitions according to different measures is in most cases NP-complete.  A large number of efficient partitioning heuristics have been developed, but their performance in terms of computation time as well as solution quality is heavily influenced by choices of parameters and certain implementation details. Fortunately, the partitioning problem itself is clearly defined and its description leads to a small interface.

The PARTY partitioning library serves a variety of different partitioning methods. Instead of implementing the methods by himself, the user may take advantage of the PARTY implementations. The performance of the code has been improved over several years and the default setting of the library enables a fast and easy start for the user. Two kinds of interfaces allow the use as stand-alone tool as well as the inclusion into application codes. Several research projects currently use the PARTY partitioning library successfully to solve their partitioning problem.

GADS - Graph Algorithms for Dynamical Systems

GADS is a toolbox of graph algorithms for the analysis of dynamical systems. It is based on the tools GAIO and PARTY and has interfaces to both tools. The set-oriented methods from GAIO are used to construct a discretized graph of the system. The graph algorithms of GADS and also from PARTY are used to describe the key characteristics of the dynamical system.
