Thanks Paul, I will try it out. That at least gives me some direction. I've been pouring over the Numpy manual, but there are so many different functions! I would like to try to write an extension that includes some of these FEM routines, but thats for later. BTW, at work I have to use Windows NT, but I've grown to love the calldll/DynWin extension. You can even interact with the windows kernel with that one. Rob. "Paul F. Dubois" wrote:

This may or may not be right. The data structures I would have to set up to test it are too much for Sunday morning.

I finally got my FEM EM code working. I profiled it and this function uses up a big hunk of time. It performs gaussian integration over a triangle. I am trying to figure out how to slice the arrays so as to push it down into the C level. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Rob.

ps. it looks to be intractible to me. Maybe I need to look at writing a C extension. I've never done that before.
