I think in that paper I didn't boast Yade:), since it is just a verification 
of Yade with some very fundamental problems compared with PFC2D but I (or 
someone else) might think it important and people would feel it reliable, when 
it is published I will let you all know.

There is some problem when I try to spell (especially pronounce) it, Yade 
should be pronounced /'yeid/-->that is how I (Chinese) pronounce it, but my 
boss (who is an american) would prefer /'ya:da/?

Anyway, the name Yade make people think of the Yacc (Yet another 
Compiler-Compiler)??, isn't it?
