The py-pde python package presented in this paper allows researchers to quickly and conveniently simulate and analyze PDEs of the general form
∂tu(x, t) = D[u(x, t)] + η(u, x, t) ,
where D is a (non-linear) differential operator that defines the time evolution of a (set of)
physical fields u with possibly tensorial character, which depend on spatial coordinates x and
time t. The framework also supports stochastic differential equations in the Itô representation,
indicated by the noise term η in the equation above.
