What is MUESLI?
MUESLI is a free numerical and graphical library, written mainly
in Fortran 95 and developped by Édouard Canot.
For a first introduction, see the
The available release is numbered 2.17.12 and dated 2021-06-24.
MUESLI needs also a C and a C++ compiler. GCC and INTEL actually constitute
compiler suites, which provide their own C and C++ compilers.
- for Linux systems, contrary to the past, only two Fortran 95
compilers are supported:
Please use the whole
unix sources archive, or use binary versions: see the
packages for Ubuntu
those for Fedora
- GNU gfortran, version ≥ 4.8 (version numbers 4.8 to 10 are ok)
- INTEL ifort, version ≥ 13 (version numbers 11 and 12 may work, but
are no longer supported)
- for a Windows system, MUESLI is intended to be used under
MinGW-w64; refer to this
providing binary files
for MinGW (32- or 64-bit).
- MUESLI can be also used on Mac OS X. Recent versions of Mac OS X
should be ok. Refer to this Darwin page
for further information.
BLAS / LAPACK
must be available on the target machine. The following versions (older ones may
or may not work) are recommended: 3.6.1 (Jun 18, 2016), 3.7.1 (Jun 25, 2017),
3.8.0 (Nov 12, 2017), 3.9.1 (Apr 1, 2021) or 3.10.1 (Apr 12, 2022).
They can be get here.
The numerical part (FML) contains more or less 400 user-available routines and
around 3000 unitary tests. As far as we know, this whole numerical library
doesn't contain any memory leak (thanks to valgrind).
However, it is not thread safe.

Reference Manual can also be downloaded.
- 2021-06-24: Release of the 2.17.12 version. After a long time
of development and a big jump in the numbering, this new release
contains some major performance improvements in the graphic part FGL,
especially a smooth behavior when using the interactive routines to
scroll inside the figure (msPan) or to move the legend frame or other
graphic objects with the mouse (msMoveLegend and the new routine
msMoveGrobj). msDrawNow renamed to msRedrawFigure, and msColormapRange
renamed to msColormapSize. The new routine msAnimation should give
smoother animations on screen. New options added for msAxis.
The numerical part FML has been also improved, by adding new routines
(mfGetAllGrObj, mfGetTypeGrObj, ..., mfRandPoiss, mfGridFun) but be
aware that some routines have seen their API changed (order or name of
arguments), as msMeshGrid and msGradient.
The only 3D graphic routine msSurf has been completely removed: Muesli
FGL is now restricted to 2D plots only, but, as a partial compensation,
msPcolor has new options to make projections of a surface in the three
canonical directions of the 3D space.
- 2020-02-15: Release of the 2.15.11 version: Streamline algorithm has
been improved (better reliability). Few bugs fixed.
- 2020-01-24: Release of the 2.15.10 version: apart many bugs
(mfErfCInv, ...) and many improvements (prime numbers computation,
msSet, msCAxis, msQuiver, msArrow,
msPatch, ...), the following FGL routines have been added to
Muesli: mfIsSorted, msStreamline, msTriStreamline
and msTriMesh. Another modification concerns the complex numbers,
which are now sorted first by module, then by phase angle.
