The distinguishing capabilities of the HiFi code include adaptive spectral element spatial representation with flexible 3D geometry, highly parallelizable implicit time advance, and general flux-source form of the partial differential equations and boundary conditions that can be implemented in its framework. Early algorithm development and extensive verification studies of the two-dimensional version of the code have been previously described A.H. Glasser & X.Z. Tang, Comp. Phys. Comm., 164 (2004); V.S.
