Fjölnir is a high-level programming language designed for numerical simulations in physics and engineering. It was developed to reduce the time between formulating a problem and obtaining computational results by providing an environment that makes writing efficient code more straightforward than traditional languages like C++. Fjölnir supports many features common in scientific computing, including operator overloading, automatic differentiation, symbolic computation, and parallel processing. Its syntax is influenced by Python and MATLAB.
