Verdandi is an opensource (LGPL) software library aiming at providing data assimilation methods and related tools. Mainly targeted at large systems arising from the discretization of PDEs, it is intentionally devised as generic, which allows for applications in a wide range of problems (biology and medicine, environment, image processing...). See also the web page , with a complete documentation in English. The first stable version (1.0) was released in June 2012 and contains most of the major data assimilation algorithms of both variational and sequential types. The current version (1.6) contains additional estimation algorithm and parallel capabilities. Note that some specific developments are performed with particular regard to cardiac modeling applications, as Verdandi is partly funded by – and distributed within – the VPH-Share and VP2HF projects and is now referenced in the peer-reviewed article [4] .

Moreover a Matlab module called VerdandinMatlab is developed in the team for pedagogical and test purposes.
