The present paper is devoted to some aspects of the development of specialized software for the modelling of crystal growth processes with magnetic fields. Due to the complexity of the mathematical models for such processes, the modern technology of software design and implementation has to be used. Our experience in numerical modelling of crystal growth processes has shown that such approach facilitates the development of complex software systems. It involves the so-called object-oriented design and programming as well as the use of powerful software libraries in order to benefit from its functionality. To illustrate the programs created by our group, some examples are briefly described in this paper. Figs 7, Refs 13.
