MILAMIN, otherwise known as Million a Minute, was created as an open source finite element method implementation in MATLAB.
MILAMIN is a handy software that can perform one million degrees of freedom per minute on a modern desktop PC (pre-processing, solving, post-processing).
MILAMIN is a package that can be used on a broad class of problems in Earth science.
Here are some key features of "MILAMIN":
· ’Million a Minute’ (MILAMIN) is an eﬃcient MATLAB implementation of FEM that is capable of setting up, solving, and postprocessing two-dimensional unstructured mesh problems with one million unknowns in one minute on a modern desktop computer. MILAMIN allows the user to achieve numerical resolutions that are necessary to resolve the heterogeneous nature of geological materials.
· MILAMIN facilitates the development of new, or improvement of already existing numerical codes with applications to Earth Sciences, using its fast MATLAB-based solvers.

· Dependencies on SuiteSparse made optional, not required. The code checks whether sparse2, cs_lsolve, and cs_ltsolve are available and if so - uses them. Otherwise native MATLAB functions are used.
· Fixed a bug when computing the inverse of element mass matrix in the mechanical solver
