Present-day stencil codes are implemented in general-purpose programming languages, such as Fortran, C, or Java, Python or derivates thereof, and harnesses for parallelism, such as OpenMP, OpenCL or MPI. Project ExaStencils pursued a domain-specific approach with a language, called ExaSlang, that is stratified into four layers of abstraction, the most abstract being the formulation in continuous mathematics and the most concrete a full, automatically generated implementation. At every layer,
