MAST runs on various flavors of Unix and can leverage MPI for distributed memory parallelism. The required list of dependencies includes

These dependencies can be installed from an automated package manager before proceeding with installation of MAST. It is recommended that PETSc be installed with support for direct sparse solvers, such as MUMPS, SuperLU_dist or Pardiso, which might require installation of PETSc from source.

Currently, installation of MAST from source is required and more automated installation processes are being developed. Detailed build instructions for installation on Mac OS using Macports are provided here. These can be suitably adapted for other Unix platforms.
