Abstract: AMReX is a software framework containing all the functionality to write massively parallel, block-structured adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) applications.

Key features of AMReX include:

  • Primarily C++ with Fortran interfaces available
  • Support for 1D, 2D and 3D
  • Support for cell-centered, face-centered, edge-centered, and nodal data
  • Support for particles and particle-mesh operations
  • Support for embedded boundary (cut cell) representations of complex geometries
  • Support for hyperbolic, parabolic, and elliptic solves on hierarchical adaptive grid structure
  • Optional subcycling in time for time-dependent PDEs
  • Hybrid parallelization strategy based on MPI+X, where X is OpenMP for multicore architectures, and primarily CUDA for architectures including NVIDIA GPUs and HIP for architectures including AMD GPUs
  • Highly efficient parallel I/O, including native and hdf5 format
  • Plotfile format supported by AmrVis, VisIt, ParaView, and yt.
