UFL - Unified Form Language

The Unified Form Language (UFL) is a domain specific language for declaration of finite element discretizations of variational forms. More precisely, it defines a flexible interface for choosing finite element spaces and defining expressions for weak forms in a notation close to mathematical notation.

UFL is part of the FEniCS Project.
