A software package implementing Schwarz-Christoffel Conformal transformation (or mapping) of doubly connected polygonal regions is fully described in this article from mathematical, numerical, and practical perspectives.
The direct application of the package would be those problems in mathematics or physics, for which the solutions are either known or can be handled easily on an annulus or on some regularized polygonal regions.
In conclusion, the software package that we have described fully above has been proven efficient in mapping doubly connected polygonal regions that have various degree of difficulties.
