Getting started with Chaste

There are two ways in which Chaste may be used:

Figure: Organisation of the code and ways to use and contribute to it.

For initially getting to grips with the Chaste source code or cardiac executable, we suggest you look at the following resources.

There is further documentation contained on the Chaste wiki. Note however that the contents of the wiki will generally refer to the latest development version of the Chaste code, which may not match a release version. Static copies of relevant pages are taken corresponding to each Chaste release. The high level user documentation can be found here and comprehensive API documentation here.

Getting help

Finally, you may ask any questions on the Chaste users' mailing list. You can subscribe to the list by following these instructions. Public list archives are available.

We have also created a short survey in order to receive feedback from users.
