Running a simulation¶
There are two ways to call smuthi:
- From a Python script. This option is more flexible regarding how to run and evaluate the simulations, and is thus the recommended way to run a simulation.
- From the command line with an input file. No programming erperience required.
In order to avoid incorrect simulation results or unnecessarily high computational effort, please consider the simulation guidelines.
In the examples section you can find a number of example scripts that illustrate the use of Smuthi. Edit and run these scripts to get a quick start.
For furhter details, the API section contains a description of all of Smuthi’s modules, classes and functions.
Call from command line¶
Alternatively, Smuthi can be executed from the command line together with one argument, specifying the input file that contains the parameters of the configuration to be simulated.
Open a command window (shell or Win Python Command Prompt) and type:
smuthi is called without an argument, it uses an
The output should look like this:
