This resource is part of a series of lectures/labs that use FiPy to introduce the phase field method. FiPy (http://www.matforge.org/fipy) is an object oriented, partial
differential equation (PDE) solver, written in Python, based on a standard finite volume approach. FiPy has been developed in the Metallurgy Division and Center for Theoretical and Computational
Materials Science (CTCMS), in the Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory (MSEL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Acknowledgment: This work was possible thanks to
the financial support of the Center for Theoretical and Computational Materials Science at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
