Basilisk

    Basiliscus basiliscus is the latin name of the extraordinary Jesus Christ lizard, famous for its ability to run on the surface of water, a characteristic it shares with another well-known water-walker Gerris lacustris.

    Basilisk is also the name of a Free Software program for the solution of partial differential equations on adaptive Cartesian meshes. It is the successor of Gerris and is developed by the same authors.
