The Mantid application framework provides a platform to support high-performance computing on neutron data. The framework will provide a set of common services, algorithms and data objects that can be extended further by specialised applications or directly by users if required. The main aims of the project are as follows:
To provide a framework for Data Analysis that is not instrument or technique/dependent.
To support multiple target platforms.
The framework must be easily extensible by Instruments Scientists/Users.
The framework should provide low-level functionalities for Scripting, Visualization, Data transformation, Implementing Algorithms, Virtual Instrument Geometry.
