KASKADE is a toolbox to build FEM programs. It is written in C++. Up to now we have implemented scalar problem types like stationary or transient heat conduction in one, two, or three dimensions. The transient code uses the Rothe method, enabling adaptivity both in space and time. Some nonlinear phenomena like obstacle problems or two-phase Stefan problems are incorporated as well. Extensions to vector-valued functions and complex arithmetic are included.
