Using Fortran in heat equation solver

The code for this exercise is located under interface/fortran.

~/hpc-python$ cd interface/fortran

The file evolve.f90 contain a pure Fortran implementation of the
single time step in heat equation. Use f2py for creating Python interface,
and utilize the Fortran implementation in heat.py .

Do you see any difference in performance between CFFI, Cython, and f2py versions of heat equation?
