Solfec-1.0 Theory Manual

Solfec-1.0 implements instances of the Non–Smooth Contact Dynamics Method [1], [2] and the Discrete Element Method. The software originated from the PhD research [3] and its further development [4]. Thesis [3] can be used as an auxiliary “theory manual”. The intention behind this document is to provide a minimalist exposition of core computational methods and algorithms implemented in Solfec-1.0 and facilitate cross–referencing with the source code and the functionalities described in the User Manual. The theory manual comprises the following sections:

[2]CMAME, 177(3–4):235–257, 1999.
