MDrop: v1.0

We present a numerical simulation algorithm for magnetic liquid droplet suspended in the external field. Boundary integral method is used for calculation of magnetic field on the droplet surface, allowing us to recalculate surface velocity with a boundary integral. This repository contains numerical code which allows running droplet simulation for a constant field, slowly rotating and fast rotating field. You can run these simulations either with interface `julia mdrop.jl -h` or putting parameters in configuration script `config.jl` by hand and execute `julia -L config.jl FastField.jl`.

The codebase evolved into three julia packages SurfaceTopology.jl, LaplaceBIE.jl and ElTopo.jl. Particularly to reproduce the numerics in this repository, it is now recommended to follow a guide in LaplaceBIE.jl.
