I am thinking about decoupling the shape of a Field from the number of components of a Variable.
The current state of affairs is that the field shape defines the components of related variables, but in reality the FE base is always scalar, applied to each component of a vector variable separately. This is in contrast with truely vector FE spaces like the edge elements used for the Maxwell equations.
To fix that I propose:
1. For scalar FE approximations the field shape will ve 1 - this is for all examples we have.
2. Variable syntax will be changed to allow for the number of components.
Apart from the clean-up reasons, it will be IMHO easier to implement the edge elements then.
Currently not. But maybe you could use pde_solve() for this purpose, see (run) isfepy.

I like using simple.py to run my definition files. Is it possible to run it without generating an output file?
