I am pleased to release PySPH version 1.0a2. This version works with Python 2.6.x and 3.4.x in addition to Python 2.7.x.
PySPH is an open source (BSD licensed) framework for Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulations. It is implemented in Python and the performance critical parts are implemented in Cython. A wide variety of SPH formulations are available and new ones can be easily added.
PySPH allows users to write their high-level code in pure Python. This Python code is automatically converted to high-performance Cython which is compiled and executed. PySPH can also be configured to work seamlessly with OpenMP and MPI.

Please see the documentation above for detailed instructions. You should be able to:
$ pip install --pre pysph
The extra --pre is needed as our release version is alpha.
- Flexibility to define arbitrary SPH equations in pure Python - Define your own multi-step integrators in pure Python - High-performance: our performance is comparable to hand-written solvers implemented in low-level languages - Seamless multi-core support with OpenMP - Seamless MPI support using: http://www.cs.sandia.gov/zoltan/
PySPH supports a variety of SPH formulations including:
- Weakly compressible SPH - Transport Velocity Formulation - SPH for elastic dynamics - Compressible flows
