License Agreement for the Software Package AWFD

between the Institut für Angewandte Mathematik der Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelms Universität Bonn - hereinafter referred as licenser - and YOU - hereinafter referred as licensee.

§ 1 Object of Agreement

The licenser lets to the licensee the right of the temporarily unrestricted use of the software package AWFD.

§ 2 Property and Copyright

The licenser is the owner of all rights of AWFD including all contributions made by others. We do this to make the code freely available on one hand, and on the other hand, to synchronize and steer the further development. Of course we appreciate and acknowledge the contributions of others by maintaing the "Thanks" section. You can also add 'Programmed by ...' comments in the code that you contribute. If this is unacceptable for you, then don't contribute code.

§ 3 Appropriate Citation

The licensee agrees that any reports or published results obtained with the Software AWFD will acknowledge its use by the appropriate citation of the licenser as follows:

"AWFD was developed by the research group in the Division of Scientific Computing and Numerical Simulation at the University of Bonn."

Any published work which utilizes AWFD shall include the following references:
