Download the USER GUIDE (update: 2020-06-22) for a description of MUST functions and examples (PDF).

This flowchart shows how MUST functions should typically be used:


The theory used in MUST has been presented here and there, during IUS short courses and a TUFFC international school, or in some articles (list below). I plan to write a document that will synthesize it. Theoretical pages will be added to the website as I find the time to write them. For the moment, I suggest that you refer to the following documents:
